Can you elaborate a little on what you mean by "supporting C++ 11" ?
Specifically, in what way is it not supported right now ?

Implying that it is "going to die" simply because it isn't changed to
support C++ 11 features is quite a stretch, don't you think ?

How many compilers exist right now that fully support C++ 11 ? And how
many users exist who are willing to switch at this point in time ?
