I'm just a user, so don't take what I say as official.
I'm pretty sure the last milestone was 10, based on the download name --
that page hasn't changed since before I started using V2. It's actually
under pretty active development right now, based on this list's
activity. However, the boost group is also working towards a new
release of boost (1.33), so the main developers' attention is probably
somewhat divided. :-)
That said, it's very usable right now. I'm using milestone 10 to build
a project that includes several third-party libraries (some source, some
binary) on Solaris, AIX, MacOS X, and Windows. It's a heck of a lot
easier than the makefiles I had, especially since I didn't use them on
Windows -- I used msdev to build, so things periodically got out of sync.
