Hi Jurko,

Thank you for your feedback.

I would like to formulate the following questing: is there a generic way to
version libraries other that changing the name of output using <tag> feature
in requirements?

At a rule which is referenced in <tag> feature we return customize name of
generated library. In this way naming of library depends on the type of
library linkage and OS, what results in non-trivial calculations.

If there is no generic solution available, where can I see reference example
of library versioning? Is the one located at contrib/boost.jam is

Thank you for your support,
