Removing a feature from a programming language can be difficult. The amount of code that will no longer compile is always weighed against whether the language provides a better alternative with an easy migration path. For the next C++ standard, quite a few features have been removed or deprecated. From auto_ptr and binary_function to register and trigraphs, this talk will present the motivation for removing and deprecating features in C++ as well as the alternatives that may be used.
