As the year is just a couple of weeks old, what can we expect from C++ in 2014?

My last blog post in 2013 was about the pointer in C++, and how most of its daily usages in C++ is now being replaced by classes replacing or managing the pointer. The last case, the RAII like objects called smart pointers is the topic of this post. I want to give an overview over the choices one can make when using smart pointers.

I remember the times, when wxWidgets 3.0 was already talked about, several years ago. Now, its been published in November, though I have to take a look at it. I've been using wxWidgets for years, but moved on to Qt for my own projects. So, lets have a look at wxWidgets 3.0...

Today I had to do some research into how to create archives in C++, as this is my windows machine, a windows or better platformindependent solution is needed. My plan is to write a small backup tool, which simply copies folders and files (maybe with filtersupport) into an archive. Of course there is the zlib as a solution, but I'm looking for an easy way to do things, and not an C interface. So, I started my search for a solution...

I've talked to some people at Meeting C++ 2013 about this, but decided not to go into the details about this at this years conference. That would have meant to have another good talk not at the conference. So, here is my thoughts and a little overview on C++ User Groups. Note that a lot of what I write also applies to you, if you just want to found a User Group for something else then C++. But I use C++ User Groups as an example, as its only logically with my expierence.

Meeting C++ 2013 was a blast, and for me a huge success. With over 200 people visiting the conference, it was a lot bigger then last years conference! With 21 Talks in 3 Tracks and 2 keynotes, the conference has evolved into a format, which I'd like to keep for the coming years.

So, boost 1.55 was released shortly after Meeting C++ 2013. This version brings a new library and updates the supported compilers. Since 1.54 there have been some quite interesting discussions about modularizing boost and moving to git. The dependency view has not changed much for this version:

Some parts of the Standard Library in C++11 are predated in boost. When playing around with C++11, you get used to using some parts in the Standard Library that are used in C++03 with their boost counterpart. Also, there is some libraries now occuring, which are C++11 based, so interfacing with either boost or C++11 code is soon an issue.

In the 3rd week of September I'll be giving a 2 day training on boost::thread, I thought its nice to post a short overview of the boost thread library...

As holiday season is coming to an end, lets have a look at the upcoming C++ Conferences. This fall offers a few special events, with great C++ content. But before listing them and writing about, a short paragraph about why you should visit one of these events.

A few weeks ago I released the first version of my tool to analyze the boost libraries. This is now the release of version 1.1, which comes with a couple of enhancements. New main features are a configuration dialog, the ability to filter edges and nodes, and the ability to choose between two different sources for the libraries in boost. But first, thank you for the feedback, some of it has inspired the new features.
