We live in interesting times.
At no times is this more true then today's C++ as we move towards a new
Standard code named C++0x, to be released, tentatively 2009.
But x could be A, B, C, D, E, F
Hi, my name is Michael Wong. I am the Canadian C++ Standard
representative for evolution and language. Robert Klarer is the representative for
library. We would like to invite you to watch this blog for discussion on C++ Standard
happenings. We will use this space to file trip reports on the C++
Standard meetings, as well as interesting happenings in the C++ community.
With loads of new features in C++0x, such as Concepts, Concurrency,
move semantics, auto type inference, new initialization syntax, C++0x
will be promising big things. Can it deliver?
But that is not all. C++ has gone through a renaisance of ideas with
the support of Generic Programming, metaprogramming, and Boost
Libraries. How about functional programming, domain-specific languages or garbage collection?
So come back regularly, and watch the story as it develops.
