How to get the current GCC manual 
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Standards.html#Standards
fixed to include this information (c++0x deprecation)?

Before fixing we need to know when we will be deprecating c++0x?

Regards,
Kannan

I was going through 4.7.0 GCC manual. Under section "2.2 C++ language" there 
was no mention of "c++0x" though it is accepted by the compiler. I think it 
is better we mention it (in the manual) and its deprecation plan in the 
future release to avoid surprise to the end user of the compiler.

Kannan

Yes, for a few releases, for backward compatibility. What does it hurt?
