Hi.

As a C++ developer, I would like to use latest standard (c++17) for developing. It provides really useful improvements! But Mer SDK used as official Sailfish SDK provides GCC just in prehistoric version 4.8.3, that supports c++11 and few features from c++14. Is there any plan for providing official support for newer compiler? Or it is better to ask - is there any plan to switch system libraries (libstdc++, Qt...) to newer GCC ABI (>6)?

If I understand it correctly, GNU libstdc++ support dual ABI for compatibility with legacy applications, so everything should work after transition. Core system will be just a bit bigger...
