> I'm pleased to announce that the next milestone release of
> Boost.Build V2 is available at
> See also
> 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
> all targets.
> - 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.
> Documentation changes:
> - 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
> mkdir commands.
> - 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
> considered successful.
> - On Darwin, when several compiler versions
> are configured, -fcoalesce-templates is applied only to
> versions that need it.
