The Dawn of a new Standard

By FANG LU posted Tue March 24, 2020 07:37 PM


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 renaissance 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.
