Thread Library Now in C++0x Working Draft

Monday, 11 February 2008

The latest proposal for the C++ standard thread library has finally made it into the C++0x working draft.


There will undoubtedly be minor changes as feedback comes in to the committee, but this is the first real look at what C++0x thread support will entail, as approved by the whole committee. The working draft also includes the new C++0x memory model, and atomic types and operations. This means that for the first time, C++ programs will legitimately be able to spawn threads without immediately straying into undefined behaviour. Not only that, but the memory model has been very carefully thought out, so it should be possible to write even low-level stuff such as lock-free containers in Standard C++.
