Wow! Looks like they are actually making significant progress with the C++ standard. It sounds like it will take a while before this stuff is implemented in C++ compilers though. I wonder how D's current features compare with this new C++ standard. For example, how does the synchronized variable in D compare to an atomic variable in C++ 0x. Does D use lock-free techniques when they are available? I know that there are some provisions for lock-free stuff in Tango, but it the synchronize keyword should support lock-free algorithms when available. -Craig
