Subject: [Boost-build] Problem with msvc build and library name

I am using Boost build milestone 12(the last released version) with VS2013 on
windows 7.

I have two projects, where one depends on the other. The source project has a
tag rule that renames the generated library names, to include version

However when the other project uses those libraries, the generated rsp file is
stripping the trailing zero, resulting in a link error.


library name in filesystem : name.1.0.lib

Jamfile declaration :
lib name : : <name>name.1.0 <search>$(MYLIBPATH)/lib

rsp file usage : "name.1.lib"

How can I make boost build to generate the correct file name?
