Boost-Build :

After reading these documents I'm a bit concerned.

My projects are using Boost.Jam (and nothing else from,
I've just updated from 3.1.9 to 3.1.12, and from what I gathered the
future of Boost.Build is python.

Does it mean that the development of Boot.Jam will be dropped, and
that future release will require Python to at least ensure some
backward compatibility ?

I'm sorry about the questions but the documents are not clear (to
me), or there is some more documentation that I'm not aware of.
