Is visual Studio To Support Concept TS by version 15.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    MS road map says Concept TS to be supported by MSVS version 15.5.

    But current version 15.5.1 does not mention anthing about concept ts in release notes.

    And as far as i can tell from MSVS the syntax is still not supported.

    Could you please advice as to when MSVC will support Concept TS.

  • Hi Jaskan,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum and thank you for your feedback.

    After research, I found it seems the Visual C++ Team still working on the concepts TS and it will not supported recently, even if the version 15.6. Please have a look at this Visual C++ Team blog: C++17 Feature Removals And Deprecations and go to the Comment part. Crull added a comment with the similar issue and the reply comes from the Visual C++ Team engineer:

    Stephan T. Lavavej - MSFT:

    In VS 2017 15.6, which has branched for release and is entering preview now, we’ll be adding a small number of C++17 library features (notably memory_resource, plus a couple of features that will light up for Clang only at first), and one language feature (guaranteed copy elision), but we won’t achieve C++17 completeness in such a short period of time. We’re still working on adding features to the 2017 release series. The remaining library features are a couple of relatively small ones (three-arg hypot and special math), one mid-sized feature (elementary string conversions), and two large features (parallel and filesystem).

    Work on the modules TS is continuing, but the specification itself is still being developed, so that work won’t be “complete” in 15.6. I don’t know enough about the state of work on concepts to say anything useful about it, except that it certainly won’t be completed soon(finishing C++17 is a higher priority for the compiler team).

    Per the above message, we can know that we still waiting for the concepts TS to be supported in VS 2017, sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

    Since our forum is to discuss the VS IDE, you can also try to using e-mail at visualcpp@microsoft.com, through Twitter @visualc, or Facebook at Microsoft Visual Cpp to know more detail information about this Visual C++ feature.

    Best regards,
