I have tried M10 and its the same problem as M9.1: it works different as
the documentation says. So I now use the release from the last Boost
distribution. is sadly unusable.

The nightly build is not downloadable. I have tried it yesterday and
today, but nothing happens if I click the zip archive link.

The starting page says in the download paragraph:
"Boost.Build releases are also available. There's zip archive"

But the linked zip archive is the M9.1 from November 2003 wich I first
downloaded. Thats a pitfall.

The linked M10 milestone in the top right corner is from oktober 2004.
It's useless with the current documentation.

Isn't it possible to update the bbv2 website with new up-to-date
releases and links?

BBv2 is a greate build tool, but the website is a fail. :-(

I'm currently writing a _german_ BBv2 tutorial because I like BBv2. And
I'm looking forward for a better BBv2 website.
