General Development The final ISO ballot on C++0x closed on Wednesday, and we just received the results: Unanimous approval. The next revision of C++ that we've been calling "C++0x" is now an International Standard! Geneva will take several months to publish it, but we hope it will be published well within the year, and then we'll be able to call it "C++11."

I've been playing with some of the features already implemented in g++, and mostly I've discovered they help reduce the amount of code I have to write. What I'm most looking forward to are the additions to std:: like smart pointers, threads, mutexes, hash containers. std::move support (new constructors and assignment operators) is something that I think will take a bit of getting used to, but it provides a much needed distinction between copying and moving. std::unique_ptr is a good example of where this matters.
