C++11: Getting Up To Speed on the New Standard


C++11 is officially the new C++ International Standard. All those new features that people have been talking about for the last few years, such as lambdas and r-value references, are now Standardized. However, the industry still has a lot of catching up to do. You can find information about what C++11 features are supported by various compilers at these sites:

Finding good reference material for C++11 is still challenging. The Standard is so new, there are no books available at the moment. The best material I’ve found is Scott Meyer’s information. Scott has been investigating C++11 features for some time, and he’s compiled all that’s he’s learned into a great document.
