For Boost.Jam (bjam), yes. The current CVS version that bjam reports is
3.1.11 will shortly be released as a package just like the 3.1.10
version is. I tend to do that close to the releases of Boost so that
when Boost is release we can tell people exactly what you want to say,
to use such and such a version. But by the same token the CVS version
will become 3.1.12 shortly after the Boost release so we can make some
change that are going to be incompatible with BBv1. And I don't really
have a clue when we would put that release out. So that's Boost.Jam,
Boost.Build.2 is another story. Volodya would have to speak as to when
he is planning to do a milestone release.
