I have little to add to Bill and Justin's encouraging comments,
except that the C++ standard is currently being revised and a new,
significantly extended one is close to being completed, and is
expected to be ratified in the 2010 timeframe. Many new features
have already been added to the standard and more still are in
the works. We are looking forward to fully implementing all of
the new components after the upcoming 4.2 release of stdcxx. We
expect to attract even more users to the project with this
milestone release, and to grow the community of contributors in
the coming months to help us with the implementation of the many
new features. Graduating from the incubator will be a crucial
step in reaching these goals and ensuring an wider adoption
of the project.
