Boost-Build :

After some bugfixing, the second preview for Boost.Build V2, Milestone 3 is
available. See

The most important user-visible changes are:

- Improve msvc initialization: plain "using msvc ;" now works,
even if vcvars32.bat was never called.
- Use of shared libraries on windows no longer produces "unused source"
- Fix a number of bugs with absolute paths on Windows.
- The 'debug' variant now implies debug runtime.

As with the first preview, I'd appreciate if a few persons try it out and
report immediate problems. If nothing serious turns out, I'll make a final

Thanks in advance,
