    An in development statically typed systems programming language; with sustainability at its core. We, the community of users, maintain it.

    Project mention: A Tour of C++, 3rd edition (covering C++20 plus a few likely features of C++23) | | 2022-10-30

    There's a looming feeling that C++17 is really going to be the last version of C++ (practically, in production). The Vasa is now half-sunk [0][1], but the alternatives are yet to be truly born. The current issues surrounding the language standards:

    - The important but half-baked features of C++20 that has never really been polished enough for actual production usage (modules, coroutines)

    - Unnecessary "hyper-modern" C++ features which are dead on arrival (ranges)

    - The dramatic increase in build times due to the STL library (which are accelerated by those hyper-modern C++ features) [2]

    - The fleeing of LLVM/Clang engineers to other projects (as you've said, Apple engineers shifting work to Swift, and Google abandoning Clang and moving to Carbon).

    - Implosions in the ISO committee (notably the controversy surrounding the rape convict)

    It's really not looking good, but there aren't that much alternatives so I think people will just stick to C++17 for the moment. Listing the worthwhile competitors:

    - Rust is a bit too awkward to use in many cases where C++ is used (particularly with unsafe Rust), and inherits some of the hyper-modern complexities/insanities of C++.

    - Zig is still too unstable, they just finished reworking the compiler

    - Jai is not even released to the public

    - D might be a candidate but IMO they should really commit 100% fully for GC-less betterC mode...

    - Nim still has many warts and unbaked features, and also the dev community was split into half recently [3]
