General Development The C++ standardization committee has set 2009 as the target date for the version of the language standard. And a lot will change. C++09 will include at least two major core features -- rvalue references and type concepts -- and plenty more relatively minor features.

If you are interested in a substantial reengineering of C++, in something that actually fixes its major shortcomings, try the D programming language.

I second that. D is a very nice language with a clear focus. My first impression was that it has the best of Java, the best of C++ and none of they're major weaknesses.
