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
http://boost.org/boost-build2 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.
