    Phoronix: GCC 5 Might Switch Its Default C Version To "GNU11"

    The GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) might finally be switching over its default C standard from the C89-derived GNU89 to the much more modern ISO C11-based GNU11...

      No. C11 is the latest version of the ISO standard C. So that's the best one can do.

          C14 is still in a Working Draft status.

              Will C99 (C2099) be made just like Rust?

                C++14 exists and had already been ratified. Never heard of C14 however. Please provide a reference.

                  To get some perspective: Visual Studio 2013 apparently finally has proper C99 support
