There is no defined synchronization between promise::set_value and future::get (33.6.6 [futures.promise] p. 21, 25).

[ Resolution proposed by ballot comment: ]

Replace "[Note: and they synchronize and serialize with other functions through the referred associated asynchronous state. — end note]" with the normative "They synchronize with (1.10) any operation on a future object with the same associated asynchronous state marked ready."

The proposed resolution for 1507 would cover this issue as well. Effectively it will reject the request but a clarification is added that the normative wording is already in 33.6.5 [futures.state].

  1. Change 33.6.6 [futures.promise] p. 21 as indicated:

    21 Synchronization: calls to set_value and set_exception on a single promise object are serialized. [ Note: and they synchronize and serialize with other functions through the referred associated asynchronous state. — end note ]They synchronize with ([intro.multithread]) any operation on a future object with the same associated asynchronous state marked ready.

  2. Change 33.6.6 [futures.promise] p. 25 as indicated:

    25 Synchronization: calls to set_value and set_exception on a single promise object are serialized. [ Note: and they synchronize and serialize with other functions through the referred associated asynchronous state. — end note ]They synchronize with ([intro.multithread]) any operation on a future object with the same associated asynchronous state marked ready.
