A Brief Look at C++0x

Bjarne Stroustrup:

In my opinion, C++ has become too “expert friendly” and it will cost us little to provide much better support for “novices.” It will cost us nothing in terms of performance (the zero-overhead principle still holds), in flexibility (we don’t propose to prohibit anything), or in terseness of code. On the contrary, we aim to simplify expression of ideas.

(Via Nat!, who got a laugh out of Stroustrup’s simplicity claims.)
