Herb Sutter, one of the rock stars of the C++ development world has posted his thoughts and shares with the world that C++0x has been approved unanimously as an International Standard. From his post:
The final ISO ballot on C++0x closed on Wednesday, and we just received the results: Unanimous approval.
The next revision of C++ that we’ve been calling “C++0x” is now an International Standard! Geneva will take several months to publish it, but we hope it will be published well within the year, and then we’ll be able to call it “C++11.”
I want to extend my thanks again to Bjarne Stroustrup for sharing his work with the world and continuing to help move it forward, and to all of the participants whose hard work went into achieving this important milestone in the history of a great language. Thanks!
Now the real work begins in moving the world from C++98/C++03 to the more sane and much more wonderful C++0x.
Finally us C++ programmers can start looking forward to modern C++ features that makes programming with C++ just that more pleasurable and powerful.
Here’s to a brighter future with C++0x!
