  My top 5 C++11 language and library features countdown

As we are preparing our upcoming 64-bit Windows C++ compiler with the latest C++11 language and library support, I’d thought I have some fun with some countdowns - my top 5 language and my top 5 library features added to the C++11 standard. This week I will focus on language and next week I will focus on the library. As you can see from the image below, there are quite a few features to choose from so I’d love to see your countdown list too.

C++11 features

Top 5 language features:
#5 - auto
#4 - range-based for loop
#3 - export removed
#2 - lambda expressions
#1 - uniform initialization syntax
