I'm pleased to announce that the next milestone release of Boost.Build V2 is
for online docs (a copy is included in distribution).
Changes in this release:
- The Pathscale, PGI and mipspro compilers are now supported.
- Support for autoconfiguration of toolset based on command-line
toolset=xxxx request, and for default toolset
configuration as a fallback.
- Support for precompiled headers for gcc toolset,
and improvements for msvc.
- Mechanism for removing inherited requirements.
- The 'make' rule support specifying usage-requirements.
- New 'project.extension' rule for declaring standalone
- New 'conditional' convenience rule.
- New 'glob-tree' rule.
- The 'glob' rule accepts patterns to exclude.
- Inline targets are now marked explicit automatically.
- Toolsets can now implicitly add requirements to
- New 'generate' rule.
- The executables produced by the 'run' rule are automatically
removed after run.
- The gcc toolset uses the version obtained by running
the compiler, if no explicit one is provided.
- The sun toolset now supports the 'address-model' feature,
and uses -KPIC for shared libraries.
- Free features on command line affect all targets, not
just 'directly requested' ones.
- Installation instructions for Linux distributors.
- Configuration options for all supported C++ compilers
are now documented.
The following bugs were fixed:
- The 'cflags' and 'linkflags' now work on Darwin.o
- The intel toolset now works on Windows.
- Fix library search options for CodeWarriour toolset.
- The <install-source-root> could cause duplicate
- Numerious fixes in Boost autolink support
- Numerious fixes in Boost.Python support.
- Indirect properties not evaluated in usage requirements.
- Generator that returns a property set but not target is
- On Darwin, when several compiler versions
are configured, -fcoalesce-templates is applied only to
versions that need it.
