Subject Re: [VOTE] Proposal to deprecate C++03 support as of 0.12.0
Date Sun, 30 Dec 2018 23:51:00 GMT
+1

I'm pretty sure I'm one of the people that was opposed to this a few years
ago.  It's been long enough now... it's time to upgrade to 11.  I recommend
you pick a minimum GCC, MSVC, and Clang, and advertise support for those,
rather than just say "C++11".
