Episode synopsis

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 introduces a number of exciting new features for the C++ developer as we include a selection of goodies from the upcoming C++0x Standard. We have already heard about many of the language improvements (auto, decltype, lambdas, rvalue references, …) all of which can be put to good use when using the Standard Template Library (STL). Here,  Visual C++ team members who work on the STL – Stephan (Dev), Damien (PM) and a cameo appearance by Usman (QA) – Usman works in our Canadian Development Center and unfortunately could not be onsite for the video - tell us all about the latest version of STL. We talk about how the language features are enabling many improvements to the STL, with performance being a big  beneficiary. To realize these benefits we needed to update our STL implementation to leverage these new techniques, for example adding “move” semantics to STL containers. Additionally  when users of our STL implementation add “move” semantics to their types that they store in our STL containers then we hook into these as well.

We did also mention lambdas, decltype, auto (and C++0x, generally) in a C9 PCP video from a while back:
