General Development "I am pleased to report that the GCC Steering Committee and the FSF have approved the use of C++ in GCC itself. Of course, there's no reason for us to use C++ features just because we can. The goal is a better compiler for users, not a C++ code base for its own sake. Before we start to actually use C++, we need to determine a set of coding standards that will apply to use of C++ within GCC."

This is no longer true. There are things that are valid in C, but not C++. I can't be bothered to Google for the details, but I'm sure if you care you can find more than enough about that subject.
