I saw Bjorne Stroustrup give a lecture as part of the New York City Google TechTalks. Pretty interesting stuff. More updates to the language that I was expecting. Some much desired features too.

Two downsides:

  1. the language is going to be that much more complicated. I’m looking at you, separate meta-type system for controlling templates
  2. it took so long for the STL and templates to get good enough support, I doubt I’ll see any of this until 2015
