OK. The efforts by C9/VC teams are very welcome. Angel

But those books I mentioned are all new editions revised for C++11, published in 2012.

C++ Primer, 5e

In this edition, we have completely revised the C++ Primer to use the latest standard.

for examples, it introduces 'auto' before 'struct'. and it explains new/delete briefly AFTER introducing shared_ptr, with lots of cautions and warnings, recommending the use of smart pointers as the best practices.
