1279. Additional differences between C++ 2003 and C++ 2011

Section: C.6  [diff.cpp03]     Status: drafting     Submitter: Nikolay Ivchenkov     Date: 2011-03-27

A number of differences between C++03 and C++11 were omitted from C.6 [diff.cpp03]:

Additional note (January, 2012):

In addition to the items previously mentioned, access declarations were removed from C++11 but are not mentioned in C.6 [diff.cpp03].

Proposed (partial) resolution (February, 2012):

Add the following as a new section in C.6 [diff.cpp03]:

C.2.5 11.8 [class.access]: member access control pdiff.cpp03.class.access

Change: Remove access declarations.

Rationale: Removal of feature deprecated since C++ 1998.

Effect on original feature: Valid C++ 2003 code that uses access declarations is ill-formed in this International Standard. Instead, using-declarations (9.9 [namespace.udecl]) can be used.
