C++14: Through the Looking Glass

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“The time has come,” the ISO said, “to talk of many things: of move-capture and literals; of making lambdas sing; why deduction is so hot; and what if digits should grow wings?”

Have you heard of the next C++ Standard? No, it is not C++11. Even though C++11 has just been ratified, C++14 will likely replace C++11 by next year. By now, we have enough experience with C++11 to know where we are missing various fingers and toes such as:

  • Why do we not have move capture in lambdas? 

  • How about some real user-defined literal suffixes? 

  • Why did we stop with monomorphic lambdas? 

  • If lambda returns can be deduced, why not normal functions? 

  • Could we get digit separators?

C++14 will be more than a bug fix release, and will contain some important enhancements on top of C++11. It will remove some of the major annoyances from C++11 that we already know of. But more importantly, how will this change the language, library and some important idioms?
