    The Working Group had its first meeting 18-19 June 1991, and has now met about 30 times - two to three times per year - in joint technical sessions with US committee J16. A number of countries have been represented at the meetings: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and the USA.

    SUMMARY OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS

    The C++ first CD was ballotted between May 28 and September 28, 1995 (CD 14882, SC22 N1824). Ballot responses included a large number of substantive comments. WG21 spent three meetings (November 1995, March 1996, and July 1996) resolving the comments, and after the July meeting voted to submit a new working draft for a second CD ballot.

    The second (Final) CD for C++ was out for ballot in SC22 N2356 ending 1997-06-09. The text of the CD is available in http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/open/n2356/ .

    The C++ standard was out for FDIS ballot ending 1998-06-23.

    The C++ standard was published 1998-09-01 by ISO ITTF as ISO/IEC 14882:1998.

    The Technical Report type 3 on C++ Performance was proposed in SC22 N2831 and JTC 1 N5784 ballot ending 1999-06-29. It was approved by JTC 1 as project JTC1.22.18015 with summary of voting as recorded in SC22 N2952. It was approved as a TR in 2004.

    Language Independent and Cross Language Standards

    The Working Group has been monitoring activities in these areas, but no specific actions have been taken. WG21 interest is represented on other SC22 working groups via the following liaison appointments:
