Compile your own C++ standard!

The C++ standards committee has published the LaTeX sources of the standard documents (as they are now, not the ones used for the standardization of C++2011) at https://github.com/cplusplus/draft. I.e. if you don't like the way a compiler looks at your code, you can now edit the document, run it through LaTeX, and claim that your compiler doesn't do what's in your copy of the standard! ;-)
More seriously, it's a fantastic source of the work-in-progress standard documents as it contains fixes that came in after the standardization procedure. And it gives you free access to the standard. You can probably even generate a web page from it! It's a very nice (and intentional) signal towards openness of the C++ standard.
