This page specifies the language features from the standard shall be used in this project, by introducing several rules and then clearifying which features are applied to the project from specific project build revision and time.

Unless otherwise specified, date is in UTC+8.


"NOTE" indicates note for maintainers and it is not directly from the source of the concerned contents.

Some external materials are referenced here by links in several categories. Entries in same category are listed ordinally specified by documentation number (if any). Since only adopted revisions are applied, most superseded reversions are placed together.

Links may be noted with following tags:

  • "dropped" indicating abandoned in development
  • "see" pointing to revised revision
  • "see also" for related materials
  • "see other derivation" pointing to siblings
  • "see subsequent" pointing to subsequent new series
  • "since" with initial project build revision and time of applying

Basic rules

The Forwarding Compatibility Rule: All language features incompatible with published/normative future versions of the language specification shall not be used.

The Baseline Implementation Rule: Each feature being used shall have been implemented in general available version of at least 2 FOSS implementations.

General status

The default configuration, baseline, is specified here. The features explicitly introduced to clearify dependences on the language implementations are also listed in this and following sections.

Several C++0x features are used since 2011-05-03, build 206. These features are also in ISO C++11(ISO/IEC 14882:2011). Previously C++03 with TR1(ISO/IEC TR 19768:2007) was used.


C++11 is now default to conform.

As per the forwarding compatibility rules, all C++03 features conflicted with future versions of C++ (e.g. export) are forbidden.

TR1 features are avoided and have been substituted by their C++11 counterparts.


Several standard features and features in technical specifications beyond C++11 is not directly relied on, but YBase provides some replacements (possibly with some custom extensions). This is specified as conditionally below.

The considered and (possibly incompletely) reviewed technical specifications beyond C++11 are:

  • ISO/IEC TS 19568:2015 Programming Languages — C++ Extensions for Library Fundamentals

(See here for information about adoption in C++17.)


As complement of implementations, LibDefect in YBase may have implementation-specific contents intended only for internal use and guarded by conditional inclusion. The public headers shall be capable for direct use with any implementation meeting the requirements specified by the YSLib documentation (including following sections).


For compatibility, the project may use different sets of rules in each parts. YBase is more stable and conservative to utilize new C++ features.

Longterm policy

  • ydef.h: For compatibility reasons, only a subset of C++11 would be mandated. The precise subset is unspecified and can vary between revisions.
  • YBase except LibDefect discussed above: Library features beyond C++11 would be used only available.
  • Other parts of the YSLib project: C++ features would be used aggressively (but still restrictd by the rules here, esp. the basic rules).

Core language compatibility features

Some core language feature have be fallback in C++03 (e.g. constexpr) or library (e.g. alignof), mostly workaround in ydef.h, as well as some optional extensions (e.g. __has_feature and __builtin_expect) wrapped as implementation details.

Library implementation patches

Due to limitations of specific environments, some standard library features might be not usable without alternative implementations. They may be enabled by using additional headers in the module YBase.LibDefect instead of the corresponding standard headers.

As patches, the code in YBase.LibDefect is highly implementation-specific. It has significant differences (which may cause undefined behavior without further guarantees) to the usual library and user code:

  • It can be directly intrusive to the global namespace, namespace std and other implementation-specific namespaces, which may be reserved by the standard.
  • As part of the standard library implementation, it may use names reserved by the standard.

The code has been carefully tuned to be compatible to supported environments, to keep out undefined behavior merely caused by this implementation.

Library compatibility features

To reduce impact on user code to adopt new language standards, several post-C++03 library features are implementated in namespace ystdex (with inlined namespace if the features have been in published standards) in module YBase.YStandardEx, either by using declarations from namespace std iff. provided by the standard library, or being implemented from scratch when the features are not available from the standard library (not the library implementation, i.e. implementation-specific interface are still forbidden).

They are designed to be drop-in replacements of corresponding specific version of std or std::experimental interface, with a few exceptions:

  • Except for some specialization of standard library templates, the enclosing namespace is not std so name lookup may behave differently to the standard library interface.
    • Use additional 'using ystdex::NAME;' to enable ADL(argument dependent lookup) for NAME.
    • Note [global.functions]/4 is still conforming similarly. Any ADL beyond namespace ystdex shall be specified by the interface documentation.
  • The overloaded operators may be implemented by ADL-only manner, i.e. declared as friend functions, rather than namespace scope entities.
    • Currently no entities are declared in this manner except for interface are ready for upcoming post-C++14 standard library features.
  • It is unspecified that whether the concerned types of replacement API is identical to the types in the standard.
    • It is important to know this to avoid type introspection based on wrong type identical assumptions, including:
      • Using static_assert or some other meta operations based on static type equivalence.
      • RTTI or exception handling based on dynamic type identity.

YBase user code may use ystdex instead of counterparts in these namespaces to simplify migration. For components to be replaced in namespace std in published standards, they are in correspoinding inline namespaces, e.g. interface first occurred in ISO C++14 is in inline namespace ystdex::cpp2014.

Components for upcoming standard (not published) are deliberately experimental as library compatibility features, so they are directly declared in namespace ystdex.

Components of library compatibility features shall not be deprecated in the current (newest formal) standard.

Extended library compatibility features

Some other interfaces in YBase.YStandardEx are designed as replacements of correspongding specific versions of std or std::experimental interface, as the compatibility features above, but with extra extensions, and with no limitation from the solution of LWG 2013 (that is, they may be with extra constexpr).

Components of extended library compatibility features shall be declared in namespace ystdex and may be declared in the same header of the compatibility features above.

Potential library compatibility features

Some other interfaces in YBase.YStandardEx are designed close to correspongding specific versions of std or std::experimental interface, to be an implemantation base of above compatibility library features or extended library compatibility features. They are not designed to be conforming to any version of the standard or technical specifications, but they may have features which can be directly mapped to the said specifications, with or without some resolutions of LWG issues applied. Though as implementation of above features, they are totally in details, they can also be used as public interfaces as other parts of YSLib.


The following editor report has been fully reviewed (b593[2015-04-23]), which means all the resolutions in the paper are categorized in the following clauses:

NOTE There might exist minor differences between editor's report and the paper in the list, e.g. N3059 (rev 5.2) in N3091 is (rev 5.1). For these cases, only the later revisions at the point of time are reviewed and probably would not be updated unless necessary.

To be done

Reviewing of following defect reports and resolutions are work in progress.

  • CWG 215: Template parameters are not allowed in nested-name-specifiers
  • CWG 218: Specification of Koenig lookup (see also CWG 113 and CWG 143)
  • CWG 397: Same address for string literals from default arguments in inline functions?
  • CWG 667: Trivial special member functions that cannot be implicitly defined
  • CWG 1135: Explicitly-defaulted non-public special member functions
    • CWG 1136: Explicitly-defaulted explicit constructors
    • CWG 1140: Incorrect redefinition of POD class
    • CWG 1145: Defaulting and triviality
    • CWG 1149: Trivial non-public copy operators in subobjects
    • CWG 1208: Explicit noexcept in defaulted definition

Reviewing of following editor reports are work in progress.

The following issues are being waiting to be resolved (and then be reviewed here) formally in public standards.

  • CWG 943: Is T() a temporary?
  • N3918 Core Issue 1299: Temporary objects vs temporary expressions
    • CWG 1299: “Temporary objects” vs “temporary expressions”
      • CWG 1651: Lifetime extension of temporary via reference to subobject
      • CWG 1893: Function-style cast with braced-init-lists and empty pack expansions
    • CWG 1300
  • CWG 1661: Preservation of infinite loops
  • CWG 1722: Should lambda to function pointer conversion function be noexcept?
  • LWG 2362: unique, associative emplace() should not move/copy the mapped_type constructor arguments when no insertion happens (see also LWG 2006)

No actions

There are nothing to do of coding and further documentations for some resolutions.

In baseline

These issues are resolved as NAD(not a defect) and thus have been rejected by WG21 in baseline:

  • CWG 37: When is uncaught_exception() true?
  • CWG 61: Address of static member function "&p->f"
  • CWG 109: Allowing ::template in using-declaration​s
  • CWG 130: Sequence points and new-expression​s
  • LWG 84: Ambiguity with string::insert()
  • EWG 91: [tiny] Core issue 622, Relational comparisons of arbitrary pointers

These issues were once confirmed but are in NAD status now due to newer feature changes which have been adopted by the standard and by this project, so there are nothing further to do:

  • CWG 395: Conversion operator template syntax

These resolutions are already adopted as TC1(Technical Corrigendum 1), i.e. in C++03, and still effective (probably revised) in later versions of the standard:

  • CWG 30: Valid uses of "::template"
  • CWG 84: Overloading and conversion loophole used by auto_ptr
  • CWG 137: static_cast of cv void*
  • CWG 178: More on value-initialization (see also CWG 543)
  • CWG 304: Value-initialization of a reference
  • LWG 61: Exception-handling policy for unformatted output
  • LWG 129: Need error indication from seekp() and seekg()
  • LWG 136: seekp, seekg setting wrong streams?
    • LWG 60: What is a formatted input function?

These issues are resolved as NAD(not a defect) editorial and thus nothing to do for user code:

  • CWG 1384: reinterpret_cast in constant expressions
  • CWG 1415: Change "declararation or definition" to "declaration"
  • CWG 1520: Alias template specialization vs pack expansion (see also CWG 1558)
  • LWG 580: unused allocator members
  • LWG 2006: emplace broken for associative containers
    • N3178: emplace broken for associative containers

These post-C++03 draft resolutions are non-normative, purely editorial or conceptional, so no actions could be taken (revised b725[2016-09-04]):

  • CWG 113: Visibility of called function
  • CWG 119: Object lifetime and aggregate initialization
  • CWG 357: Definition of signature should include name
  • CWG 404: Unclear reference to construction with non-trivial constructor (NOTE superseded by "non-vacuous initialization" wording in working draft)
  • CWG 413: Definition of "empty class"
  • CWG 452: Wording nit on description of this, partially adopted
  • CWG 538: Definition and usage of structure, POD-struct, POD-union, and POD class
    • CWG 327: Use of "structure" without definition
  • CWG 582: Template conversion functions
  • CWG 594: Coordinating issues 119 and 404 with delegating constructors (see CWG 119 and CWG 404)
  • CWG 618: Casts in preprocessor conditional expressions
  • CWG 627: Values behaving as types
  • LWG 542: shared_ptr observers
  • LWG 610: Suggested non-normative note for C++0x (i.e. small function object optimization)
  • LWG 616: missing 'typename' in ctype_byname
  • LWG 628: Inconsistent definition of basic_regex constructor
  • LWG 640: does not handle (unsigned) long long (i.e. for ostream::operator<<), outdated
  • LWG 972: The term "Assignable" undefined but still in use
  • LWG 2135
    • LWG 2240: Probable misuse of term "function scope" in [thread.condition]
  • N2775: Small library thread-safety revisions
  • N3026
    • CWG 999: “Implicit” or “implied” object argument/parameter?
  • P0134R0: Introducing a name for brace-or-equal-initializer&#8203;s for non-static data members

These post-C++03 draft resolutions would never be depended on because they are only intended useful for language implementations and there shall be no compatibility problems for conforming code (revised b593[2015-04-23]):

  • N2194: decltype for the C++0x Standard Library


These resolutions are only about TR1 or features have been formally deprecated/removed from current ISO C++, so shall never be depended on:

  • LWG 527: tr1::bind has lost its Throws clause
  • LWG 588: requirements on zero sized tr1::arrays and other details (for std::array, resolved by LWG 776)

These resolutions are duplicate:

  • CWG 1300: T() for array types (duplicate of CWG 914)
  • CWG 1568: Temporary lifetime extension with intervening cast (duplicate of CWG 1376)
  • LWG 479: Container requirements and placement new (duplicate of LWG 580)
  • LWG 486: min/max CopyConstructible requirement is too strict (duplicate of LWG 281)

These resolution are superseded by later modification on the working paper:

These features are still under development but the approved versions are superseded (note that the superseded versions may still newer than currently adopted version), and not adopted here:

  • EWG 22: N4030, 3745, N3694 Feature-testing recommendations for C++, N3435 Standardized feature-test macros (for adopted version, see N4200)
    • N3435: Standardized feature-test macros
    • N3694: Feature-testing recommendations for C++
    • N3745: Feature-testing recommendations for C++
    • N4030: Feature-testing recommendations for C++
  • N3890: Container<Incomplete Type> (partially superseded by N4056)


These features were once adopted by the working paper but later removed away, so no actions would be taken until introduced to the draft again:

  • LWG 1029: Specialized algorithms for memory management need to be concept-constrained templates
  • LWG 1001: Pointers, concepts and headers (see LWG 1178)
  • N2525: Allocator-specific Swap and Move Behavior (i.e. allocator_propagate_*)

  • N2779: Concepts for Clause 18: Part 2
  • N2780: Named Requirements for C++0X Concepts, version 2
  • N2786: Simplifying unique_copy (Revision 1)

There are actions taken by the committee to remove away some former working draft features which are never used here:

  • N2549: Excision of Clause 31 (i.e. <date_time>)

Non defects

These out-of-baseline issues are resolved as NAD(not a defect):

  • CWG 622: Relational comparisons of arbitrary pointers (see EWG 91)
  • CWG 1005: Qualified name resolution in member functions of class templates (see also CWG 1017; note CWG 515 is still effective)
  • LWG 466: basic_string ctor should prevent null pointer error
  • LWG 760: The emplace issue (see LWG 2164 which is still open)
  • LWG 763: Renaming emplace() overloads (N2680 renamed one of the overloads to emplace_hint; for related discussion see LWG 1302)
  • LWG 1202: integral_constant needs a spring clean
  • LWG 1302: different emplace semantics for sequence and associated containers
  • LWG 2311: Allocator requirements should be further minimized

Not applicable

Some proposals are not approved.

  • N3400: A proposal for eliminating the underscore madness that library writers have to suffer

Some proposals are not applicable yet and to be resolved in future. There also may be workaround provided by C++ implementation extensions or user code.

  • N2683: issue 454: problems and solutions
    • LWG 454: basic_filebuf::open should accept wchar_t names

Adopted changes

C++11 core language features and headers below now are being used.

Note: the "adopted" time notes listed in following entries are relative to working paper.

Imported TR1 Headers

TR1(see N1836) headers imported to C++11 are used:

  • <array> (since b218[2011-06-14])
  • <type_traits> (since b206[2011-05-03])
  • <tuple> (since b206[2011-05-03])
    • with LWG 1382: pair and tuple constructors should forward arguments
    • with LWG 1384: Function pack_arguments is poorly named (i.e. forward_as_tuple; since b206[2011-05-03])
    • with N2244: Wording for decay, make_pair and make_tuple
    • with N2299: Concatenating tuples, with modification (since b303[2012-04-23])
  • <unordered_map> (since b206[2011-05-03])
  • <unordered_set> (since b206[2011-05-03])

New headers

New non-TR1 headers from C++11 are used:

  • <atomic> (for all platforms from b590[2015-04-03]; for platforms supporting multithreading since b328[2011-07-25]; for platform MinGW32 since b299[2013-04-08])
  • <chrono> (since b291[2012-03-07])
  • <forward_list> (since b218[2011-06-14]; see N2543)
  • <typeindex> (since b468[2014-01-20])
  • <regex> (since b795[2017-06-11])
  • <system_error> (since b476[2014-02-16]; see N2241)

For all implementations supporting multithreading, these headers are also used:

  • <condition_variable> (since b328[2011-07-25]; for platform MinGW32 since b299[2013-04-08])
  • <future> (since b520[2014-07-23])
  • <mutex> (since b328[2011-07-25]; for platform MinGW32 since b299[2013-04-08])
  • <thread> (since b328[2011-07-25]; for platform MinGW32 since b299[2013-04-08])

Note: LWG 1360 specified single-threaded program should be able to use <atomic>, and resolved by N3256. However, the current YSLib doesn't require it for single-threaded programs.

Technical Specifications

TR1 features was once used, but now retired and corresponding ISO C++ features shall be used, since they are imported from TR1:

  • TR1 <type_traits> including metafunctions and std::tr1::aligned_storage (since b175[2010-12-23])
    • replaced by C++11 std::aligned_storage, see N2341 (since b206[2011-05-03])
  • TR1 <memory> std::tr1::shared_ptr (since b203[2011-04-22])

Some adopted modifications have already in the final draft of technical specifications:

  • N4480: Programming Languages — C++ Extensions for Library Fundamentals
    • with N4288: Strike string_view::clear from Library Fundamentals (adopted 2014-11)

Adopted features

Tentatively applied

All adopted changes are confirmed being included in the newest working paper and would not be removed in future unless they are not in the working paper or published standard any longer.

Some C++11 features are not requried to reduce compatibility impact on implementations, but can be utilized when available, i.e. used conditionally (by conditional inclusion or being transparent):

  • N2340: C99 Compatibility : __func__ and predeclared identifiers (revision 2) (since b638[2015-09-24])

The conformance of following clearer specification (and possible stronger restrictions to user code) or removal beyond C++11 are concerned and took into account:

  • CWG 1376: static_cast of temporary to rvalue reference
  • CWG 1493: Criteria for move-construction
  • CWG 1570: Address of subobject as non-type template argument
  • CWG 1596: Non-array objects as array[1]
  • CWG 1629: Can a closure class be a literal type?
  • CWG 1672: Layout compatibility with multiple empty bases
  • CWG 1885: Return value of a function is underspecified
  • N3436: std::result_of and SFINAE

The conformance of following clearer drafting specification (and possible stronger restrictions to user code) or removal beyond C++14 (with Ready state for proposed resolutions still not in the working paper when adopted, or open/drafting with the problems themselves) are concerned and took into account:

  • CWG 1430: Pack expansion into fixed alias template parameter list
  • CWG 1581: When are constexpr member functions defined?
  • LWG 2013: Do library implementers have the freedom to add constexpr? (see also here)
  • LWG 2072: Unclear wording about capacity of temporary buffers
  • LWG 2385: function::assign allocator argument doesn't make sense

Tentatively not applied

The following changes about standard library are not depended on, but were considered some replacements have been used as forcing the requirements for implementations:

  • N4002: Cleaning‐up noexcept in the Library

These post-C++14 library features are not depended on currently (revised b722[2016-08-23]) but direct replacement (to be used conditionally once the draft standard is approved) is provided in YBase:

  • N3911: TransformationTrait Alias void_t (replaced by ystdex::void_t, with workaround for CWG 1558; see also N3843 for motivation)
  • N4277: TriviallyCopyable reference_wrapper (Revision 1) (replaced by ystdex::lref)
  • N4280: Non-member size() and more (Revision 2) (adopted by WP 2014-11; replaced by size, empty and data in namespace ystdex, also ystdex::range_size with addtional interface for std::initializer_list)

These already adopted (by the standard or the working paper) post-C++11 resolutions (which may need no modification on a previous conforming C++ implementation) are not depended on currently (revised b752[2016-12-20]) but confirmed still being compatible, and also would not be relied on in future based on the current status for code quality reasons:
