C++14 is the next update to the C++ programming language. While only considered a minor update over C++11, it will bring with it several new features.

Last week I wrote about some of the new features coming to C++14 from a nice summary of the proposals published at The blog has now published their C++14 Part 2 covering more of the interesting proposals for changes/additions to the C++14 language specification.

The proposals have yet to be evaluated by the C++ committee, but some of the interesting items proposed include bettering random number generation, introducing object aliases, a parallel alogrithms library, network/HTTP support in C++, a fork-join parallelism library, standardized representation of a-synchronous operations, new interfaces for MapReduce, resumable functions, shared locking, unicode support in the standard library, and SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) support in the C++ standard library.
