With concepts and ranges coming to the STL, big changes are in store for the Standard Library and for the style of idiomatic C++. The effort to redefine the Standard Library is picking up pace.

Right now, I'm working on bringing the power of "concepts" and "ranges" to the Standard Library with the generous help of the Standard C++ Foundation.
