No - lambdas, auto and static_assert are all available with no
command-line options set.

The only mention of C++ conformance in the online help (accessed by CL
/?) is this, which is about C++ 98 conformance(!):

   /Zc:arg1[,arg2] C++ language conformance, where arguments can be:
       forScope[-] - enforce Standard C++ for scoping rules
       wchar_t[-] - wchar_t is the native type, not a typedef

and the 'forScope' option seems to be ineffective anyway (i.e. C++ 98
for-loop scoping seems to always be active)

N/A - there doesn't appear to be any options to turn off C++0x features, either.
