I would suggest using ODB 2.5.0 pre-release built using build2 (we
test with VS 2019, you can see the CI results):


Regarding Boost, I would suggest using the latest release. The ODB
profile should be compatible with it (and if not, please report so
that we can fix it).

If you are feeling adventurous, you can get the latest Boost as
build2 packages from here (until build2 0.14.0 is released, at
which point they will be published to cppget.org):


Note that in this case you will also need to use staged build2
0.14.0 pre-release (again, until it's released in a few weeks):
