Coming into this thread late, but this is of relevance:


66% regularly use C++11
46% don't plan to upgrade to a new C++ standard
21% regularly use C++03

41% mostly use C++11
<5% mostly use C++03
<3% mostly use C++98

I think investment in C++03 yields significantly diminished returns.
And C++11 is simply the most popular version.
In light of this information, I would drop support for C++03 and
require C++11 going forward.
