Boost does change with every release, and I still keep using 1.38 in several
projects of mine, but these changes are not limited to ABI at all.
Everything changes, you have to retest the whole lot, for correctness as
well as performance.

And in general, expecting ABI stability from a collection of predominantly
header-only libraries is setting one up for severe disappointment.
