The final version of 2013 will also include a few C99 features. Microsoft has long avoided supporting C99, the major update to C++'s predecessor that was standardized last millennium, claiming that there was little demand for it among Visual Studio users. This was true, but only to a point; it's true that many Windows developers weren't especially interested in C99 because they had no good tooling to support it. Open source developers, however, embraced the update, as it makes C a lot less awkward to work with.After 2013 is released, a CTP will deliver a bunch more C++11 features, with C++14's generic lambdas and return type deduction likely to be included, along with a selection of C++11 features. The remaining C++11 and C++14 features will be implemented in subsequent releases (as will a couple of C++98 features that Visual Studio doesn't quite get right).
