Using shared_ptr instead of raw pointers helps you avoid the common pitfalls associated with raw pointers but in some cases, its performance isn't satisfactory. Unique_ptr is a new C++0x smart pointer that is compact, fast and fully compatible with the standard library. Find out how to use unique_ptr to make your code safer without sacrificing performance.

You're often required to repeat identical pieces of initialization code in every constructor of a class that declares multiple constructors. That's because unlike a few other programming languages, The C++ programming language doesn't allow a constructor to call another constructor of the same class. Luckily, this problem is about to disappear with the recent approval of a new C++0x feature called delegating constructors which are explained in this C++ tutorial.
ISOC C++ standards committee moves one step closers to the completion of the C++0x standard.
Developers rejoice, the C++0x standard has changed the rules of initialization to allow you to initiate almost any object.
In this C++ tutorial, learn how to utilize Lambda expressions in your C++ Applications.
Improve Exception Safety In Your C++ Applications by Annotating Functions That Don't Throw Exceptions
Your compiler assumes by default that almost every function might throw an exception. As a result, it might generate suboptimal code. C++0x now lets you explicitly annotate functions that never throw with the [[nothrow]] attribute. Find out how to use this attribute to write efficient and self-documenting code.
