    Great to see the show back. I love the Image Watch plug-in and think its going to be rather for game developers too.

    When it comto to future shows it would be great to get an update where auto vectorization is going to next, Jim Hogg mentioned tthey there is much more advanced auto vectorization tech already in the labs, it just didn't make it onto the Visual Studio 2012 train.

    Also, whatever happened to native LINQ and native Rx. The Going Native episode for these technologies hinted at more to come but thus far I'm not aware of any real updates or 'packaged' releases.

    Lastly, and I appreciate he's probably super busy, could we get a 5 minute 'Herb update' - it would be great to hear from him a brief summary on how C++ 14 is coming along.

    I second tomkirbygreen's request - since watching Herb's initial webcast I've jumped on the Modern C++ and CX bandwagon; the transition from C# has been an experience to say the least (heavy investment of personal time as the learning curve is steep and material is scarce); a reassurance that Microsoft's commitment is still at the level would be appreciated - from a C# developers perspective we'll need something more to look forward to because the constraints and development experience for building Windows 8 apps using C++/CX has more challenges then benefits (within the context of what we have to give up).   I'm going to stay the course but that is more the pit-bull in me then any anticipated ROI.

    "Today at Build 2012, Herb Sutter announced that we’re following through on our commitment by shipping the first batch of new C++11 features in the November 2012 Compiler CTP. Herb also announced that more information about the next batch of C++11 features would be coming in the first half of 2013."
