Issues for Boost.Build V2




This page describes current issues with Boost.Build V2. The issues marked with
BS are bite-sized — they don't require deep knowledge of internals
and can be quickly done by a new person. If you'd like to help with the developement,
they are excellent start.

See also /Documentation Issues.

Milestone 4




<html>
<ul>
<li>Better support for STLPort
<li>Allow declaring targets everywhere
<li>Inline targets
<li>GNU gettext support


</ul>
</html>

Important




<html>
<ul>
<li>Investiage Bjam crash, as reported by Maurício
</ul>
</html>

Core




<html>
<ul>
<li>More user-friendly <library> --- need to revisit Ali's proposals.
<li>dependency -> using + dependency
<li>review relevant properties (and 'make' rule too)
<li>allow declaring "standalone" targets
<li>stage --- some cleanups
<li>subvariant-dg --- some cleanups
<li>(BS) handle the case where dependency requirements of a target
refer to itself — do not loop infinitely.

</ul>
</html>

Toolsets




<html>
<ul>
<li>What the "right " suffix for static library on Cygwin.
<li>Duplication of flags between gcc.link and gcc.link-dll is very bad thing.
<li>Need to scan .rc files for includes.
<li>improve gcc — must be comparable with V1
<li>(BS) library order for gcc
<li>Some way to control default C++ flags. E.g., "-Wall" is hardcoded
for gcc. See this message.
<li>Find the cost of specifying all library in linker command
line. Consider linking of libraries into libraries

</ul></html>

Headers scanning




<html>
<ul>
<li>BUG: generated headers are not scanned.
<li>Performance problems
<li>Dependency between two generated files.
</ul>
</html>

Boost Book support




Those issues are probably all solved now, but need to take the time to check.

<html>
<ul>
<li> should have 'default' format
<li> do something better that peeking at BOOT_ROOT
<li> catalog files.
</ul>
</html>
