Yes, there are lots of new features. We hope they'll fit together like a set of Lego blocks to support more powerful styles. Let's hope x in C++0x becomes 9.<div>&nbsp;</div> When will IBM start "dribbling out" C++0x features. I'd like to see "auto" and uniform initialization soon. I guess you'd like to see attributes and user-defined literals <img class="jive-emoticon" border="0" src="http://www-949.ibm.com/software/rational/cafe/images/emoticons/happy.gif" alt=":-)" /><div>&nbsp;</div> --- Bjarne; <a class="jive-link-external" href="http://www.research.att.com/~bs">http://www.research.att.com/~bs</a>

Thanks, Bjarne for visiting our blog. IBM, like other compilers, are in the process of implementing many C++0x features. Some of which are already released in xlC V10.1 for AIX and Linux.<div>&nbsp;</div> <a class="jive-link-external" href="http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools/xlcpp/aix/">http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools/xlcpp/aix/</a><br /> <a class="jive-link-external" href="http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools/xlcpp/linux/">http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools/xlcpp/linux/</a><div>&nbsp;</div> In that release, we have implemented C++0x long long and C99 synchronization.The way to access it is to use the option -qlanglvl=extended0x<div>&nbsp;</div> There is a free trial download as well.<div>&nbsp;</div> The order of implementation and release will be dictated by many priorities, including not necessarily in any order, customer requests, feature completeness in the standard, dependencies on other features, etc.<div>&nbsp;</div> Of course, the opinion and specific request of the inventor of C++ will take a certain priority in this overall list <img class="jive-emoticon" border="0" src="http://www-949.ibm.com/software/rational/cafe/images/emoticons/happy.gif" alt=":)" /><br /> And if others would like to have input into the order, please discuss here or in the forum.<div>&nbsp;</div> We wish to thank-you for the leadership you have shown in leading the Evolution Group of the C++ Standard towards C++0x.
