C++ 2011 standard approved by unanimous vote

Posted by on in Blogs
I just heard from our C++ standards committee member, that the C++ FDIS (ISO/IEC FDIS 14882) has officially been approved by the ISO in a unanimous vote. 21 of 21 National Bodies voted to APPROVE. Well done everyone who has worked so hard on the updated C++ standard.

Even as we are finishing C++Builder XE2 for this year's release, our C++ compiler team is also working on Embarcadero's next generation C++ compiler which will support the updated, and now approved, C++ standard.
