Troy gives a high-level overview of the major features introduced in the 2011, 2014, and 2017 updates to the C++ language.
- [Instructor] There was a long gap from the C++03 standard to the release of C++11. But since that time, the ISO C++ committee has been releasing new standards every three years. C++ is once again under active development. In any single release, there are too many additions to talk about all of them. Here are some of my favorites. C++11 added lambdas, auto type deductions, list initialization, smart pointers, move semantics, and range based fore loops.
C++14 gave us generic lambdas, return type deduction, and decltype. C++17 gave us structured binding, nested namespaces, inline variables, and constexpr lambda. Far more features have been added to both the language and the libraries. I hope you are as excited to learn about all this great stuff as I am to show you.
