You can decide for yourself, for example by taking look at




Or tests for signals library -- they illustrate the difference better.
Or tests for any other library. The primary difference is that project
requirements are used to simplify jamfiles.

At least for testing, all the rules ('compile', 'run') has the same interface
in V2 as in V1.

even that does not progress as quickly as I'd like.
