Modern ILE C++ Compiler (at least C++11) and future support
We need a modern ILE C++ compiler (at least C++11). Furthermore this compiler should be frequently updated within a IBM i release. In order to be able to provide our software long term for the IBM i platform, we would also need support for newer versions of the C++ standard. The current ILE C++ 7.4 compiler does only support a subset of the C++11 standard.
We are in the process to modernize our application and are changing from ILE Cobol to ILE C++. In order to program modern C++ and to be able to use current versions of 3rd party libraries (e.g. boost) we need an adequate C++ compiler.
