C++0x draft finished

Only bugfixes, no new feature, will be added to the standard from now on.

Good. It is almost certain it will be called C++ 2009.

As I see, many new features will bring great convenience to programming. But... C++ will appear far more complicated and difficult and perhaps unreasonable to a newbie. It’s already complicated enough now...

Ten years ago C9x became C99, and now C++0x is becoming C++09. But there will be one certain difference: No major compiler completely implements C99 even today; however, every actively developed C++ compiler seems to be planning to add C++09 support as immediately as possible.
