Hi Tim, Jeff,

Kim has assembled a quite detailed list of new C++ features intended for
use in HotSpot/OpenJDK (with links to the corresponding C++ standard)


Could you please provide a summary of which of these features are already
available since which version of xlC for AIX and potentially escalate the
implementation of the missing features within IBM’s xlC on AIX team.

Thank you and best regards,
