C++ Gets a New Home

By November 13, 2012

Follow me on:

Microsoft have some more updates to their Visual C++ compiler to incease the number of ISO C++ 11 features it supports. This is out in a Community Tech Preview.

Also mentioned there was the new site http://isocpp.org/ which you can think of as the new official home of C++ and yes, Bjarne Stroustrup can be found there. That this official site encompasses GNU GCC for Windows, Clang, Visual C++ 2012 Express and Intel C++ Compiler in the one place is impressive. Worth taking a look at for videos and news. I didn't know that the Intel C++ compiler was free for non commercial use.

With a free version of Visual C++2012 – any possibility of including Visual Studio 2012 in the list of compilers. It has a pretty complete std library implementation. (For example the chrono code would provide timing information).
