Usage status

This table lists C++11 features and whether they can be used in Inkscape or not (yet). Add C++11 features that you would like to use to the table, so that we know what to test for to increase the C++11 "allowance".

Feature Can use? Comment
std::unique_ptr<> not yet Replaces boost::scoped_ptr<> and std::auto_ptr<>
std::shared_ptr<> not yet Replaces boost::shared_ptr<>
std::unordered_*<> Replaces the hack in util/unordered-containers.h
auto (type inference) not yet
enum class not yet Strong enum constants (take the name of the enum, can't be implicitly converted to int)
range-based for not yet Concise for loops with containers (Python alike)
lambda functions not yet In-place definitions for small functions
constructor delegation not yet Reduces boilerplate when an object has many constructors
right angle brackets in templates not yet Fixes coding style oddity
async, futures not yet Allows easy multithreading
std::initializer_list not yet Easier container initialization/assignation and implicit constructor calls
toxic feature of doom NO Never use this (in case we stumble upon C++11 features that we really don't like)
supported feature from 0.50

Platform status

We need to keep coordinated with the section on Distro Dependencies.

Also see these pages:

Note that __cplusplus is always 1 for GCC 4.6 that is used on Windows. So #if __cplusplus < 201103L or variants does not work to choose between C++03 or C++11 code.

The table lists C++11 features and whether they work in trunk on a certain platform as advertised. If all lights are green ⇒ set the light to green in the Usage status section (taking current trunk version into account).
