          Indeed, hard to support something before you know what to support. Note that it doesn't say how long after.

          No. Well, it does support long long and possibly a few other minor things. No compiler fully supports c++11 today anyway.

          I'm pretty sure the answer will be that they are not allowed to comment. You can see however that they recently published job offers to help implement c++11, from which you can guess that they have started work on it (whether that will be available as partial support in the next release is for you to guess) but are far from being done.

            The current release, Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3, has no support for C++ 11. (Except for minor features we introduced years ago for other reasons -- like "long long" and Unicode literal characters and strings -- that found their way into the new C++ standard.)

            We are indeed working on C++ 11, and plan to support it fully in a future release.
            It is not yet possible to say anything about release dates.
