I should clarify that "C++0xA" is a cheeky informal name for the next ISO Standard C++ language, due out soon. It had been labeled "C++0x" on the expectation that that would become "C++09" after release this year. "0xA" is the C++ (and C) hexadecimal notation for the decimal value 10. The name "C++0xA", then, implies the pessimistic expectation that it is delayed to 2010. To me the opportunity to call it C++0xA is reason enough to delay its release.
