My school as a part of a distinguished lecture series presentation had bjarne stroustroup come to speak about c++0x. I've been largely aloof from programming but I was really excited for this. He came and talked to us about the new features and the bureaucracy of the commitee. It was definitely inspiring.
I love the new features -- auto types and concepts are impressive to me, and I know even on this board I've talked about variadic templates and local template arguments before I knew of the planned improvements..I'm hyped on the new features. What do you guys think of the new deal?
