The Library side brought about some of the most interesting changes. I already discussed the key discussions with respect to unifying the Asynchronous futures proposal in The View (or trip report) from the Oct 2009 C++ Standard meeting.
This resulted in a paper which will be published in the upcoming mailing (in about a week from now), which will show the approach on Asynchronous Call A Simple Asynchronous Call.
The key changes there were:
These components are not restricted to multi-threaded programs but can be useful in single-threaded programs as well.
The other resolved issues include:
Most of these are motivated by National Body comments from CD1. This shows the effort and focus of the committee during these periods as we continue to resolve the almost 600 comments that was received from the September 2008 CD1 draft.
There is now plan to issue a second draft for comment (post removal of Concepts, and with the fixes like above from CD1 comments). This will be CD2 and will be aimed for release after the next meeting in March 2010, in Pittsburgh hosted by Carnegie Mellon.
I will describe in another post more details on the schedule changes which is now clearer and I have updated in the C/C++ Standard hub
