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).

For years I have struggled to understand where C++ fits into the landscape.

Where is C++ a compelling solution?


IMHO C++ is a compelling solution for larger projects in which runtime efficiency matters. C++ is e.g. well suited for embedded software. A more detailed discussion can be found here: C++ in Embedded Systems: Myth and Reality, http://www.embedded.com/98/9802fe3.htm .
