I don't see a *substantial benefit* from going to C99 and I've worked on numerous embedded platforms where it is highly unlikely that C99 support will ever be available.
Kurt - do you have a specific list of features you think would be beneficial - or is it just a general sense to move forward? We should ensure that C++ builds work - but that is mostly simply keyword avoidance - but sticking with the base C89/C90 in my experience is still a reasonable position. For Microsoft reading https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/fa17bcdd-7165-4645-a676-ef3797b95918/details-on-c99-support-in-msvc?forum=vcgeneral and https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vcblog/2013/07/19/c99-library-support-in-visual-studio-2013/ may assist. I know there are Microsoft platforms that require use of earlier compilers than VS2013 to support (unfortunately). Tim.
