      Any reason they couldn't have delayed Fedora 28 a week for this?

          They still don't have complete C++17 support which irritates me a lot. Unbelievably, Visual Studio has better C++17 support - even better than Clang: https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/compiler_support

            If you're asking for the entire distro to be compiled with gcc-8 instead of gcc-7 then you're looking at quite a bit of work. If all you want is to have access to the newer compiler then I'm sure you'll be able to pick it up soon in an update.

              Take a second look. Gcc have had full C++17 support since gcc 7. The one block you can see red, is not part of C++17 or would not be implemented by the compiler, it is an standardization of an optional extension of the standard library, if you want it talk to the libstdc++ and libc++ guys, not the compiler guys.
