New C++ Standard!


The new C++ standard has been approved: 21 countries voted "yes", 0 "no", and 14 abstained. The official name will be ISO/IEC 14882:2011(E). But there is an ongoing discussion whether the nick name should be C++0x or C++11 - given that the the next version should be published within the current decade.

CERN's Library will offer a PDF of the new standard as soon as it's published; I will post when it's available. And you can already try it out e.g. with GCC or clang, simply by passing -std=c++0xas an additional flag.
