A good programming language is far more than a simple collection of features. My
ideal is to provide a set of facilities that smoothly work together to support
design and programming styles of a generality beyond my imagination. Here, I
briefly outline rules of thumb (guidelines, principles) that are being applied
in the design of C++0x. Then, I present the state of the standards process (we
are aiming for C++09) and give examples of a few of the proposals such as
concepts, generalized initialization, being considered in the ISO C++ standards
committee. Since there are far more proposals than could be presented in an
hour, I’ll take questions.

One of the major goals of the language part of C++0x is to provide better
support for generic programming. I see that as a key to both better library
development and to better support of “C++ novices” of all backgrounds. The focus
of the talk will be the proposals currently being finalized in the standards
committee, such as concepts, generalized initialization, auto, template aliases.
The aim is to consider such features as a whole supporting programming
techniques, rather that as just a collection of neat features to be considered
one after another.
