Dear AppVeyor,

Is it possible to update VCPKG, or at minimum the boost package, because updating to the latest version now causes always to rebuild all boost packages and that takes a very long time:

cd "C:\Tools\vcpkg"
git pull
.\bootstrap-vcpkg.bat
.\vcpkg update

The following packages differ from their port versions:
    boost-iostreams:x86-windows 1.72.0 -> 1.72.0-1
    boost-modular-build-helper:x86-windows 1.72.0 -> 1.72.0-1
    bzip2:x86-windows 1.0.6-4 -> 1.0.6-5
    liblzma:x86-windows 5.2.4-3 -> 5.2.4-4
    zlib:x86-windows 1.2.11-5 -> 1.2.11-6
    zstd:x86-windows 1.4.0-1 -> 1.4.4

.\vcpkg upgrade --no-dry-run

The following packages will be rebuilt:
  * boost-accumulators[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-algorithm[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-asio[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-assign[core]:x86-windows

  * boost-math[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-modular-build-helper[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-multi-index[core]:x86-windows

  * boost-property-map[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-property-tree[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-proto[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-ptr-container[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-qvm[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-random[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-range[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-regex[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-serialization[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-spirit[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-system[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-test[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-thread[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-ublas[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-units[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-unordered[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-uuid[core]:x86-windows
  * boost-xpressive[core]:x86-windows
  * bzip2[core]:x86-windows
  * liblzma[core]:x86-windows
  * zlib[core]:x86-windows
  * zstd[core]:x86-windows

That would be great !

With kind regards,
Rob

    Have you tried vcpkg on Visual Studio 2019 image? It should be pretty updated there.

    Yes I have, this is the top part the the build script:

    version: 1.0.{build}
    image: Visual Studio 2019
    configuration: Release

    you can verify this when you issue the steps previously mentioned (git
    pull, boostrap, vcpkg update, upgrade)
