I have switched over from my original and tested the new version. Works fine
for me.

As long as Intel don't change their name this should all work out fine :-)

The use of the subfeature <platform>linux in the naming of <toolset>intel
brings up a few issues with conditional properties. Since conditional
properties are currently being discussed I will mention them now.

The simplest syntax using <toolset>intel-linux work fine as expected.

exe test : tests.cpp
: <toolset>intel-linux:<cxxflags>TEST

In the documentation a comma seperated syntax is defined for conditional
property ( "," property ) * ":" property
: <toolset>intel,<platform>linux:<cxxflags>TEST
results in the error
intel,<platform>linux" is not a known value of feature <toolset>

Other syntaxes that explicity mention the platform subfeature also fail in
this context.
: <toolset-intel:platform>linux:<cxxflags>TEST

All this is tested with the latest CVS HEAD. Maybe I am just suffering from
total syntax confusion?

All the best,
