async and ~future (Revision 4)

by Herb Sutter, Chandler Carruth, Niklas Gustafsson


N3637 documented the consensus of SG1 in Bristol. This paper is a minor update to N3637 to make the “change std::async” part of the proposal explicitly separable by updating the example code and adding three alternate sections to section 3 (3.1, 3.2, 3.3). This is to reflect that the main question at the end of Bristol was about how changing std::async affects binary compatibility, and to reflect the “N3637 except {remove|deprecate|leave-as-is} std::async instead of changing it” straw polls that had the most support in the July Santa Clara SG1 meeting.
