I assume by Boost Test you mean Boost.Test library (not regression testing
component of Boost.Build).

Boost.Test usually easy to integrate into IDE. See usage sections in docs
for more on that

Even though Boost.Test doesn't (and couldn't portably) support this in
reworked version that will come with Boost 1.33 there is an abiltiy to
register any custom test observer. You could write one that sends e-mails on
errors (though it may be more natural/easy to do on test runner script

I believe we have regression reports like this.

Boost.Test could report results in XML format. It's up to you how to collect
and present them.

There is no "whole boost library". There are some general papers in "more"
section. There is special section on Boost.Build/regression testing.

Try It may have something close to what you want.
