Sounds like the joy of C++/CLI (.NET) infecting the syntax highlighting of ordinary C++ code. (MSDN: Arrays, C++ Component Extensions) The same thing always bugged me about the token event. Never did find a way to turn off the non-standard C++ syntax highlighting, but I don't recall looking too hard. If you search around, you might find something.

It does not exist, maybe you meant 2005 or 2008 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Visual_Studio). And it's 2014

As for the reason it is included, the language evolved again and std::Array is part of it. Visual Studio picks up the word Array and colors it accordingly. C++ has evolved multiple times, with the language standards or standard additions coming in 1998 (standard), 2003 (standard), 2005 (addendum), 2007 (addendum), 2011 (standard). C++14 (a standard) is just about to be signed off, and C++17 is already a working draft.
