Hi everyone!

The next meeting of the C++ Standards Committee (WG21) will be
November 4-9 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

This meeting will be focused on bug fixing and stabilization for
C++20, which has achieved feature-complete status at the last meeting.
The C++20 draft contains a number of significant new features,
including Concepts, Modules, Coroutines, Ranges, and default
comparisons (Contracts has slipped to C++23), so undoubtedly there
will integration and stabilization work to be done. In parallel, the
Evolution groups will start looking at C++23 material. A proposal for
the committee's high-level direction for C++23 can be found here [1];
some significant items there include contracts, networking,
reflection, and pattern matching. I'd also like to call particular
attention to the web_view proposal that is the subject of another
dev-platform thread [2].

If you're curious about the state of C++ standardization, I encourage
you to check out my blog posts where I summarize each meeting in
detail (most recent one here [3]), and the list of proposals being
considered by the committee (new ones since the last meeting can be
found here [4] and here [5]).

I will be attending this meeting, splitting my time between the
Evolution Working Group Incubator (which I've been roped into chairing
at this meeting), and the Evolution Working Group itself (on days when
the Incubator isn't running), perhaps also visiting the Reflection
Study Group if time permits. As always, if there's anything you'd like
me to find out for you at the meeting, or any feedback you'd like me
to communicate, please let me know!

Finally, I encourage you to reach out to me if you're thinking of
submitting a proposal to the committee. I'm always happy to help with
formulating and, if necessary, presenting a proposal.
