I have been programming C since long before C++, and C++ since it's birth.  The standard has evolved a lot, and it's just trying to keep up with the innovation happening elsewhere, in other langauges.

 

Honestly, lambda's are simpler to manage than function pointer declarations.  As with most things, it's simple, it just won't seem that way until it does for you.

 

I don't like some of the additions; things like auto and decltype are not expanding the capability of the language, but only helping some become more comfortable with it.  I fully expect a day where two expert C++ coders can write code that the other cannot understand :-)

Even though I agree that these are not adding up to the language, comfort plays a really important role when learning a language. I lost account of how many times I've seen people asking for help when their problem was simply misusing and 'misdeclaring' iterators... This kind of problem adds a lot to the learning curve and features like auto will help anyone who is just starting.
