C++09: A Glimpse into the Future
Following the Portland meeting in October 2006, the C++ standardization committee set 2009 as the target date for C++09, the next C++ standard. C++09 will include at least two major core features: rvalue references and type concepts. Other core features are also included, such as automatic deduction of types from initializers, delegating constructors, nullptr, and even a solution to the right angle bracket nuisance. Join me for an overview of core C++09.
