I probably don't have a comprehensive picture of all the differences between
C++98 and C++11. From what I understand, you should be able to use the
synchronous part of statechart as-is and I don't currently see much room for
C++11-specific improvements.

The asychronous part would obviously benefit from the threading support in
C++11 and I will look into migrating to C++11 primitives in the not too
distant future.

HTH & Regards,
