LibreOffice Plans For C++11 / C++14 Development
LibreOffice has been pushing forward in its development recently with supporting OpenCL in its spreadsheet, gaining an OpenGL rendering back-end, and supporting other modern features and system capabilities for the open-source office suite. LibreOffice is also planning for its adoption of the C++11 programming language and even C++14 language features.
A presentation earlier this month at FOSDEM in Brussels covered the "LO++14" plans to make use of "21st century C++ in LibreOffice development."
LibreOffice developers acknowledge C++11 adoption by open-source compilers caught up much more aggressively with LLVM Clang 3.1, GCC 4.7, and Microsoft Visual C 2012 already supporting the core of the updated language. These compilers are also already preparing their support for C++14 that will be a minor revision to the popular programming language.
Those wishing to find out more details about the LibreOffice C++ update for its developers can find the FOSDEM ODP slides.
