The July 2008 mailing for the C++ Standards
Committee was published today. Primarily this is just an update on the "state of evolution" papers, and the issue
lists. However, there are a couple of new and revised papers. Amongst them is my revised paper on
packaged_task: N2709: Packaging Tasks for Asynchronous Execution.
As I mentioned when the most recent C++0x draft
was published, futures are still under discussion,
and the LWG requested that
packaged_task be moved to a separate paper, with a few minor changes. N2709 is this separate paper. Hopefully the LWG will
approve this paper at the September meeting of the C++ committee in San Francisco; if they don't, then
will join the long list of proposals that have missed the boat for C++0x.
