C++17 Final Standard Is Now Official

In News
Earlier
this year in May, we told you that C++17 standard is now feature
complete and expected to ship soon. Well, if you’ve been waiting
for the same, that time has finally arrived as the official
standard has been published on ISO.org.

The final standard of C++17 has been published as ISO/IEC
14882:2017 on ISO.org, as reported by Phoronix. Based on
C++11, this new standard aims to make C++ a less bloated
programming language and infuse some modernity into the same.

As it turns out, C++17 has become a major standard, just like
C++11 and C++98. This introduces new features like ‘if’
initializers, structured bindings, support for UTF-8 character
literals, fold expressions, etc.

It’s worth noting that C++17 was formerly known as C++1z.
LLVM’s Clang compiler has already been updated to acknowledge
this change to C++17.

In case, you are willing to get an overview of the new C++17
features, you can take a look at this Wikipedia article. There are numerous
other resources available on the web that can help you
understand the new release even better.

This standard will be followed by C++20, whose work has already
started and it’s expected to ship in about three years.

What are your favorite features from this release? Let us know
your views and share the feedback.
