This is an unofficial snapshot of the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC22 WG21 Core Issues List revision 108h. See http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/ for the official list.
[Adopted at the February, 2016 meeting.]
A default constructor that is defined as deleted is trivial, according to 11.4.5 [class.ctor] paragraph 5. This means that, according to Clause 11 [class] paragraph 6, such a class can be trivial. If, however, the class has no default constructor because it has a user-declared constructor, the class is not trivial. Since both cases prevent default construction of the class, it is not clear why there is a difference in triviality between the cases.
(See also issue 1928.)
Notes from the October, 2012 meeting:
It was observed that this issue was related to issue 1344, as the current specification allows adding a default constructor by adding default arguments to the definition of a constructor. The resolution of that issue should also resolve this one.
Notes from the September, 2013 meeting:
It was decided to resolve issue 1344 separately from this issue, so this issue now requires its own resolution.
Proposed resolution (October, 2015):
Change Clause 11 [class] paragraph 6 as follows:
A trivial class is a class that
has a default constructor (11.4.5 [class.ctor]), has no non-trivial default constructors, andis trivially copyable . [Note: In particular, a trivially copyable or trivial class does not have virtual functions or virtual base classes. —end note]
