What about C++11? The difference between C++14 and C++11 is not that
large. As a sole programmer maintaining a library offering, it wasn't
too much trouble for me to restrict myself to C++11. Simply rewriting
lambdas taking auto parameters into hand rolled classes, and not using
library conveniences like std::enable_if_t was sufficient. But
supporting anything before C++11 would require a rather large increase
in the amount of change and maintenance, and more resources than I
have available to devote to the project.
