Yes. I watched (the video of) Stroustrup's keynote There are some very interesting features in it; and some disappointments over what didn't get in.
The only problem is it'll probably be 2015 at least before the major compilers fully support the standard; and around 2025 before major projects will consider it safe to use any of the new features. :(
I mean C99 introduced inline functions which are a far better choice for most things that use those horrible multi-line extended macros that litter most OSS libraries and projects, but still you find those 30 line #define macros everywhere because -- apparent -- there may be some user in Outer Mongolia that still hasn't got a C99 compiler.
