Subject: [boost] C++ announcements coming tomorrow

Herb Sutter, the Convenor of the ISO C++ Standards Committee, will be
making some announcements tomorrow likely to be of interest to C++
developers in general and Boosters in particular. The venue is a talk
titled "The Future of C++" at the Microsoft Build Conference.

While some of Herb's announcements will be specific to Microsoft, the
key C++ initiatives involve Boost and the whole C++ community. Some of
the ideas evolved from feedback Herb got at C++Now/BoostCon 2012 last

I'll post a summary of the announcements tomorrow, but you can also
watch the live stream at at 12:45 PM Pacific
time. For other time zones, see


PS: We don't usually post teasers like this on the Boost lists, but
Herb asked that a notice be posted, and given the endless work he has
put in on this over the summer, I couldn't say no.
