C++11 final committee draft accepted

[13rd March 2010]

Interesting news from Sutter's Mill this afternoon.

The biggest news is that this afternoon we voted in the final remaining feature changes to C++0x, and to much applause then unanimously approved the text for international ballot as a Final Committee Draft (FCD).

I'm happy and somewhat surprised to see that export has been removed (and not merely deprecated) and function throw specifications have been replaced with a noexcept keyword. noexcept will serve a similar purpose to an empty throw() specification in the current standard. Other types of throw specifications are deprecated.

There's more detail on Herb's blog.
