After each ISO C++ meeting, I post a trip report update to my blog summarizing what’s new as of that meeting with a drill-down into some highlights. But wouldn’t it be handy to have an up-to-date summary scorecard with a snapshot of all proposals’ status to date? Indeed it would, and so today someone asked me in email:
I’m a software developer interested in forthcoming C++ standard. Are there any resources on the web where can I find
list of already accepted proposals as of the last meeting in Bellevue? I know that I can read the draft but I would like to have all new features in a list form.
Answer: Yes, thanks to the gracious volunteer efforts of Alisdair Meredith. Alisdair maintains the “State of C++ Evolution” paper, and posts updated versions before and after each ISO committee meeting. You can find the current one here:
For updates, just watch the committee papers pages where new batches of papers get posted every two or three months, including new versions of the evolution status paper and new updated working drafts of the next ISO C++ standard (maintained by our hardworking, and amazingly tireless, project editor Pete Becker).
Thanks, Alisdair and Pete!
1. Yes, Pete’s car has wheels. That’s not what I meant.
