When will Fedora compile C++ libraries with -std=c++11 by default? My understanding is that this is needed as a prerequisite in order to move to the new C++11 standard because C++98 and C++11 libraries are not ABI compatible.

@Narayan It is not about full gcc c++11 support, rather it is when will Fedora use the c++11 g++ to compile its libstdc++ (and many others) library; otherwise the system is not compatible with new c++11 programs.

I got an answer to this from mether (Rahul Sundaram).

Actually full C++11 is available from gcc 4.8.1 onwards.

Refer my question "when will gcc 4.8.0 be available for f18?"
