I am new to Jam and am weighing the benefits of each of the flavors of
Jam. Can anyone tell me why there are so many flavors of Jam and why
haven't some of the improvments introduced by the other flavors been
integrated into Perforce Jam?

As a brand new user of Jam, should I use Perforce Jam unless I run into
issues which Boost.Jam solves? Is Perforce Jam considered the official

Thanks for any information.
