Microsoft Microsoft's C++/CLI Language Specification is an ECMA Standard (ECMA-372) and they are trying to fast track this document to be an ISO standard. The problem is that the language specified is very different from C++ and so is likely to create a great deal of confusion. Details can be found in the UK objections [.pdf], which suggest that a name distinct from C++ be used for the proposed language.

I have to agree with the UK document. The changes are significant and reasons behind the changes are less than legit.
