That "someone" was me, I'm working on that too, but it's not V2 fault ;-)

Ok, so it means that the problems with date_time and test are gone. That's

As for signals -- I'm kinda at loss. As I've already told I have free 7.1 now
and it even compiles stuff after I grab "windows.h" and other includes from
6.5. When I run "bjam --v2 link=shared link-runtime=static" in signals/build,
it works! I need link-runtime=static since free version does not have dynamic

That happened with version 1.4 of libs/signals/build/Jamfile.v2, do you have
that one?

As for regex, with current version links fails because I don't have some
"uuid.lib", whatever that is, so I don't know the situation with it.

What I've tried is to compare command line for V1 and V2. There were some
changes which I've corrected -- they still are related to dynamic linking.

The new revision of libs/signals/build/Jamfile.v2 is 1.5 and for
libs/regex/build/Jamfile.v2 it's 1.3. Could you update, verify that you have
those version, and try again?

Oops... seems like I've had uncommitted changes in status and in top-level
dir. I've comitted it now, but I see some warnings/errors even on Linux, so
I'd say it does not work now. I'll look into this ASAP.

That's fine, moreover, since date_time no longer fails for you the directive
