Bjarne Stroustrup announces C++ Core Guidelines

Stroustrup said: “You can write C++ programs that are statically type safe and have no resource leaks. You can do that without loss of performance and without limiting C++’s expressive power. This supports the general thesis that garbage collection is neither necessary nor sufficient for quality software. Our core C++ guidelines makes such code simpler to write than older styles of C++ and the safety can be validated by tools that should soon be available as open source.”

I am NOT happy so see more life blown into C++.  C++ should have been legacy code by now if not for the curse of Automated Garbage Collection that afflicted all recent and more modern programming languages.
