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".
|std::unique_ptr<>||from 0.93||Replaces boost::scoped_ptr<> and std::auto_ptr<>|
|std::shared_ptr<>||from 0.93||Replaces boost::shared_ptr<>|
|std::unordered_*<>||from 0.93||Replaces the hack in util/unordered-containers.h|
|auto (type inference)||from 0.93|
|enum class||not yet||Strong enum constants (take the name of the enum, can't be implicitly converted to |
|range-based for||from 0.93||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 0.93|
We need to keep coordinated with the section on Distro Dependencies.

__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).
