I feel no shame in admitting that compilers go way, way over my head, so I can’t make much sense of all this.

That’s kind of a big deal. 2015-04-23 6:25 am Nth_Man Related to that, there’s a “full experimental support for C++14”: https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-5.1.0/libstdc++/manual/manual/sta… Edited 2015-04-23 06:28 UTC 2015-04-23 12:35 pm Carewolf Where did you see C++11 being standard? As far as I can tell only the C11 standard was made standard. 2015-04-23 7:23 pm rimzi C++11 (formerly known as C++0x) is a version of the standard of the C++ programming language. It was approved by ISO on 12 August 2011, replacing C++03, and superseded by C++14 on 18 August 2014. The name follows the tradition of naming language versions by the year of the specification’s publication.

Take a look at assemblers, what you see is what you get Edited 2015-04-24 20:37 UTC 2015-04-25 1:07 am Berend de Boer Isn’t everyone using clang these days? 2015-04-25 6:01 pm cb88 Rally against terrible conversioning numbers! It wouldn’t matter so much if GCC wasn’t such a high profile project… and the fact that there isn’t much reason to deviate from previous release numbering other than to just be annoying.
