A trip report from the just-concluded ISO C++ meeting:
by Herb Sutter
From the article:
Draft C++17 hit its major feature-freeze at our previous meeting, and over the summer we conducted its major ISO comment ballot. So the primary focus at this meeting was addressing the review comments. Think of it as the “shakedown” stage of fixing bugs before release.
We expected to take two meetings to resolve all the comments, and we are on track. So at our next meeting we hope to finish addressing the ballot comments and any other fixes we can resolve and hopefully set C++17 in stone as we send it out for its possibly-final formal approval ballot.
... Besides resolving C++17 ballot comments, we also worked on the TSes: We completed one, sent two out for their main ballots, and have two more expected to go out for their main ballots at the next meeting. ... A lot of our C++ standardization work is reaching “ship stage” at about the same time, which is pretty exciting to see, so we’re in the middle of a busy handful of meetings.
