General Development DevX interviewed Bjarne Stroustrup about C++0x, the new C++ standard that is due in 2009. Bjarne Stroustrup has classified the new features into three categories Concurrency, Libraries and Language. The changes introduced in the Concurrency makes C++ more standardized and easy to use on multi-core processors. It is good to see that some of the commonly used libraries are becoming standard (eg: unordered_maps and regex).

Where is C++ a compelling solution?


Quite often I've found myself in situations where C++ delivers performance comparable to C but is much more faster to work with as you can take abstractions further away from the actual hardware in a way which is not entirely unlike some popular scripting languages.
