      I wish the committee would drop the attributes thing. It is a bad idea and makes for obscure code: side effects raised to first class language feature.

        That sounds like it will be an interesting release. Also likely to be in time once Gentoo hits the first Zen CPUs/APUs. Also rising HSA support is a good thing, hopefully this will pave the road for future programs making better use of it.
        Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

          Which attributes have side-effects? To me it seems they just enhance diagnostics, optimizations and static analysis.

            I was cognitively disonancized. I was thinking about Java annotations.
