C++ keeps marching down the road to be more higher level and “scripty”. A couple of features in the next standard, C++14 that I’m really looking forward to:

  • Lambdas with generic types. ML can eat it’s heart out. This will become possible in C++:

    auto lambda = [](auto x, auto y) {return x + y;}

  • Extending auto to infer the return type of functions. Though a part of me still wants to see them just for documentation.
