ISO Finalizes C++ Update

ISO Finalizes C++ Update

The ISO steering committee for C++ has approved the final draft of the latest version of the language. That means C++ 2011 could be released later this year if ISO/IEC Information Technology Task Force (ITTF) approves the draft as expected.

“Perhaps the most heartening thing to me is that this standard is widely considered among committee old-timers as the highest-quality FDIS document we have shipped,” wrote Microsoft’s Herb Sutter, who chairs the ISO C++ standards committee.

C++ creator Bjarne Stroustrup says the update “feels like a new language: The pieces just fit together better than they used to, and I find a higher-level style of programming more natural than before and as efficient as ever.”
