    Phoronix: The Latest On C++17, Early Work For C++20

    There was a C++ standards meeting recently in Issaquah, Washington and a report on it is now available with the latest on C++17 and early work around what will form C++20...

    What are you talking about? GCC and clang both already have great support for it!

      Does anybody believe that adding more and more pages to the standard or as a TS makes C++ better? This language will eventually die under the weight of its own complexity.

          To make the language less complex, they could drop all the old stuff (that mean dropping the C syntax compatibility!) and create a new textual binding for the language, but I doubt anyone would agree to actually do this.

          In the meantime, I'm really hyped to start using moduleĀ­s and concepts. That will change the whole way I program in a better way.

            I think people fail to realize how terrible was metaprogramming before C++11 and how much it is easy to make short and reliable code over the years...

                All compilers support the latest standard (C++14) and also most of the draft C++17 standard.

                Why are you stuck in C++11?

                  Tried building with clang for android using the cocos2D framework. Couldn't use make_unique which from what I know it's c++14. So I had to use C++11 at most.
                  -std=c++14

                  clang and gcc do come with c++11/14 support and at least partial c++17. As long as u know how to use it and the compiler is not ancient.

                    all major compilers support c++14. actually, they support most of c++17 already
