|I would love to hear the thoughts of people who have kept up with the developments in both these languages.|
Some of the stuff I'm wondering along is features, safety, performance, simplifying the language and so on.
C++11/14 brought good things to the table, perhaps C++17 will bring more improvements?
I havent gone through the proposals for upcoming features in either language but seems like the pace of Rust development is really good.
But then there is the idea of ignoring legacy C++ and treating Modern C++ as a new language altogether.
Just curious to hear anyone's thoughts on the state of these two languages.
