C++14 Early Thoughts

By Bjarne Stroustrup

I focus on small changes with a chance to make it into C++14, such as braces for copy initialization, return type deduction in functions (just as in lambdas), generic (polymorphic) lambdas, user-defined literals in the standard library, dynamic arrays, generalized constexpr functions, and “concepts lite” (template argument requirements). Much of this have been implemented and is being experimented with. If time allows, I'll present a few ideas of my own that could be important but have little chance of making it into C++14.

There will be an extensive Q&A on topics related to the evolution of C++.
