C++11 is the successor to the C++03 standard, adding various core language changes and fixes, and an improved and expanded standard library.

Please use this tag when referring to C++0x (the working title of this standard before it was finalized).

Some of the main improvements of C++11, compared to the previous C++03 standard, include:

• an expanded standard library
• type inference using the auto keyword
• lambda expressions, as in [](int x) { return x * x; }
• a range-based for loop, as in for (auto &x : my_array) ...
• move constructors
• constructor chaining
• a more natural syntax for the initialization of objects
• multithreading support
• generic programming support
