C++20 and C++23 features generally require the /std:c++20 and /std:c++latest compiler options, respectively.

VC Redist Lockdown

To reduce the frequency of required reboots when updating VS (and VS Previews), we "lock down" the Visual C++ Redistributable containing the STL's msvcp140.dll. (Most of the STL is header-only, so most changes are unaffected.) Approximately twice a year, specific VS Previews will be "unlocked", so the VC Redist will contain updated DLLs. These are the unlocked releases:

  • VS 2022 17.1 and earlier (everything was unlocked before this process started)
  • VS 2022 17.2 Preview 2
  • VS 2022 17.4 Preview 2

Expected in VS 2022 17.4 Preview 3

    • P2302R4 #2911 ranges::contains, ranges::contains_subrange
    • P2499R0 #2947 string_view Range Constructor Should Be explicit
  • Merged LWG issue resolutions:

    • LWG-3724 #2903 decay-copy should be constrained
  • Fixed bugs:
    • put_time() (and the time_put::do_put() machinery powering it) now avoids modifying errno when it succeeds. #2049
    • Added a compiler bug workaround to fix compiler errors with source_location::current() in certain scenarios. #2824
    • Fixed compiler errors when using <format> to print durations with extremely small periods (e.g. femtoseconds, attoseconds). #2814
    • Fixed "istreambuf_iterator is not dereferenceable" assertions when attempting to use time_get::get() or get_time() to parse certain formats when there's insufficient input. #2851
      • For example, with the format "%X", the input "3:04:05" succeeds. The input "3:04" previously asserted/crashed; now it sets ios_base::failbit | ios_base::eofbit as required by the Standard.
    • Removed std::filesystem::directory_entry::clear_cache(), which was a non-Standard extension. #2854
    • Fixed incorrect results from <complex> log()/log10()/pow() on ARM64. #2870
    • Fixed path::lexically_relative() to handle UNC drive paths like \\?\C:\meow.txt. #2867
    • Fixed filesystem::read_symlink() and filesystem::copy() to handle junctions. #2877
  • Improved performance:
    • VS 2022 doesn't support targeting Windows Vista and Server 2008, but the STL still had runtime branches for those unsupported OSes. We've removed that code to improve performance, notably in mutex::try_lock(). #2317
      • The STL still supports targeting Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.
    • Removed more unused code for Windows XP/Vista, reducing the size of the STL's DLL by 2 KB, and reducing the number of OS calls during STL startup. #2841
    • Reduced the number of OS calls in filesystem::resize_file() and experimental::filesystem::resize_file(). #2771
    • Added vectorized implementations of ranges::min_element(), ranges::max_element(), and ranges::minmax_element(). #2825
    • Improved the optimized codegen for T + complex<T>, T * complex<T>, complex<T> * T, and complex<T> / T. Improved the debug codegen for complex<T> + T and complex<T> - T. #2855
  • Improved throughput:
    • <charconv>'s large lookup tables are now separately compiled, so translation units including <charconv> will emit significantly smaller object files. #2125
    • The STL now uses helper function templates for testing bitmask types, replacing a significant number of function overloads. #2865
  • Enhanced behavior:
    • error_codes with 0 values and future_category or iostream_category now return "success" from message(), matching the behavior of generic_category. #2742
    • <system_error> now maps: #2744 #2899
      • WAIT_TIMEOUT, ERROR_TIMEOUT, and ERROR_SEM_TIMEOUT to errc::timed_out
      • ERROR_BAD_NET_NAME to errc::no_such_file_or_directory

    • Added visualizers for unique_ptrs and vectors storing character sequences. #2843
    • Added more visualizers for <any>, <format>, <functional>, <mutex>, and <ranges>. #2191
    • <cstdlib> now makes its using-declarations for std::getenv() and std::system() available to UWP apps. #2850
    • <filesystem> and <experimental/filesystem> now use GetTempPath2W() when it's available on Windows 11. #2302
      • This is a security improvement for processes running as SYSTEM; there's no behavioral change for ordinary processes.
    • Added a couple of warning numbers for easier lookup: #2061
      • STL4038 warns "The contents of <meow> are available only with C++NN or later."
      • STL4039 warns "The contents of <coroutine> are not available with /await."
  • Improved test coverage:
    • Enabled tests now that Clang 14 supports <coroutine>. #2861
    • Slightly accelerated test runs by running memory leak tests with only debug configurations (where memory leak tracking is available). #2853
    • Fixed a test that failed at runtime on ARM64. #2864
  • Code cleanups:
    • Various cleanups (described in detail in the PRs, not repeated here). #2766 #2828 #2863 #2950
    • Simplified tuple_cat()'s implementation. #2833
    • Improved how <system_error> maps Windows error codes to errc values. #2837
    • Removed compiler bug workarounds. #2861
    • Refactored <atomic> to share code with C11 atomics (work in progress). #2846
    • Updated most files (with limited exceptions) to consistently include the <cmeow> wrapper headers instead of the <meow.h> CRT headers. #2852
  • Infrastructure improvements:
    • Fixed cross-PR/CI contamination by cleaning both before and after checkout. #2832
    • Added support for writing benchmarks with google/benchmark. #2780
    • Updated dependencies. #2831 #2861
      • Updated build compiler to VS 2022 17.3 Preview 3 (now required).
      • Updated Clang to 14.0.5 (now required).

    • P2440R1 #2580 ranges::iota, ranges::shift_left, ranges::shift_right
    • P2441R2 #2619 views::join_with
  • Merged proposed resolutions for LWG issues (not yet accepted for the C++ Working Draft, but we've chosen to implement this speculatively):
    • LWG-3705 #2741 Hashability shouldn't depend on basic_string's allocator
  • Fixed bugs:
    • Fixed linker errors when using <any> with our unofficially supported mode to disable exceptions. #2193
    • Fixed compiler errors when using <format> with the new compiler option /presetPadding by adding a compiler bug workaround. #2746
    • Fixed division by complex zero to behave consistently with other implementations. #2758
    • Fixed a memory leak in <syncstream>. #2763
    • Fixed compiler errors when formatting long or unsigned long values with formatter. #2768
    • Fixed a binary compatibility break in the unordered associative containers, which could cause memory corruption when linking code that was built with different versions of the STL. #2774
      • Original Versions: VS 2015 through VS 2019 16.2 inclusive.
      • Modified Versions: VS 2019 16.3 through VS 2022 17.3 inclusive.
      • Fixed Versions: VS 2022 17.4 and later.
      • The bincompat break happened when mixing Original with Modified code. All other mixing is safe: Original with Original, Modified with Modified, Fixed with Fixed, Original with Fixed, and Modified with Fixed.
    • Fixed a bug in the unordered associative containers, specific to user-defined allocators, where the containers sometimes called deallocate() with null pointers. User-defined allocators aren't required to tolerate that, so the containers now avoid such calls. #2790
    • Fixed a bug in deque, specific to rarely-used fancy pointers, where some fancy pointers weren't being destroyed. #2775
    • <chrono> formatting now accepts %x ("The locale's date representation") for year_month_day, year_month_day_last, year_month_weekday, and year_month_weekday_last. #2762
    • std::filesystem::directory_entry's constructors, assign(), and replace_filename() now call refresh() as required by the Standard and will propagate any errors (via exceptions or error_codes), except that "file not found" is not considered an error. #1343
    • Added a compiler bug workaround to construct_at(), allowing immovable objects to be emplaced via copy elision. #2624
    • Fixed leap second validation when parsing time_points. #2705
    • lerp() now avoids overflowing to infinity when it can calculate the correct result with a fallback approach. #1918
    • Fixed a debugger visualization issue, specific to Clang in C++20 mode (or later), where the debugger wouldn't display the contents of a list, forward_list, or ordered/unordered associative container. #2782
    • Fixed the visualizers for the non-Standard stdext::hash_map container family. #2784
    • Fixed the visualizers for make_shared() and allocate_shared(). #2811
  • Improved performance:
    • Improved clamp() codegen with conditional move instructions. #2336
    • Massively improved iostreams performance for signed char, unsigned char, char8_t, and byte elements, matching the performance of char by avoiding a slow codepath. #2739
    • vector's range constructor, insert(), and assign() now efficiently handle iterators that satisfy the forward_iterator concept, even when their classic iterator_category isn't convertible to forward_iterator_tag. #1794
    • Reduced the size of the lookup tables used for <format> grapheme clusterization, saving 2670 bytes. #2757
    • std::filesystem::path::lexically_relative() now avoids unnecessary memory allocations. #1915
    • Added vectorized implementations of min_element(), max_element(), and minmax_element(), with speedups ranging from 1.5x to 26.6x (times, not percent). #2447 #2821
    • Reduced binary size for programs using atomic::wait. #2781
    • Avoided an unnecessary OS call in thread::join(). #2820
  • Improved throughput:
    • Used if constexpr instead of tag dispatch in:
      • get<I>() and get<T>() for pair. #2756
    • optional, pair, and tuple now use conditional explicit instead of SFINAE in all Standard modes, for all supported compilers. #2796
    • The STL now uses "hidden friends" for all operators that are required to exist but aren't required to be namespace-scope functions (e.g. n + vector::iterator). This improves throughput by not polluting unqualified name lookup. #2797
  • Enhanced behavior:
    • <tuple> is now a core header. #2730
    • The STL now supports enabling C++20 char8_t in C++14 and C++17 modes via /Zc:char8_t. #2748
    • complex<NonFloating> now emits a deprecation warning explaining that it has unspecified behavior according to the Standard. #2759
    • When wchar_t is a real type, the STL now avoids emitting many specializations for unsigned short that are intended for fake wchar_t only (i.e. the non-Standard /Zc:wchar_t- option). #2164
    • The STL now marks all of its namespace-scope constexpr variables as inline in C++17-and-later mode. #2792
      • This consistency improvement will also avoid emitting a new compiler warning that MSVC is implementing for C++20 header units: "warning C5260: the constant variable 'std::_Meow' has internal linkage in an included header file context, but external linkage in imported header unit context; consider declaring it 'inline' as well if it will be shared across translation units, or 'static' to express intent to use it local to this translation unit".
    • constexpr basic_string now uses the Small String Optimization. #1735
  • Code cleanups:
    • Removed compiler bug workarounds. #2791
    • Various cleanups (described in detail in the PRs, not repeated here). #2798 #2801 #2802 #2815
    • Removed visualizers for VS 2013's binary-incompatible representations of various data structures. #2804
  • Infrastructure improvements:
    • Eliminated duplicate builds of the "alias objects". #2743
    • Fixed distributed test runs to split up the test suite deterministically, avoiding missed or repeated tests. #2795
    • Properly applied /analyze to PR/CI builds, and fixed warnings in the STL's separately compiled sources. #2812
    • Updated dependencies. #2754 #2791
      • Updated build compiler to VS 2022 17.3 Preview 2.
      • Updated CMake to 3.23 (now required).
      • Updated Python to 3.10.5.
      • Updated CUDA to 11.6.0 (now required).
  • Updated _MSVC_STL_UPDATE. #2764

  • Merged proposed resolutions for LWG issues (not yet accepted for the C++ Working Draft, but we've chosen to implement this speculatively):
    • LWG-3234 #2703 Sufficient Additional Special Math Overloads
    • LWG-3627 #2607 Inconsistent specifications for std::make_optional overloads
  • Fixed bugs:
    • Fixed vector<bool> to properly invalidate iterators during reallocation, which fixes compiler errors with constexpr usage of vector<bool>. #2441
    • empty_view rvalues are now considered borrowed_ranges as required by the Standard. #2576
    • Added compiler bug workarounds to is_convertible and common_reference, so contiguous_iterator<const volatile int*> is now true. #2592
    • Added missing constraints to functions that were implied by "Effects: Equivalent to" Standardese: make_any(), make_optional(), shared_ptr::operator=(), shared_ptr::reset(), and weak_ptr::operator=().
    • Fixed filesystem::path's comparison operators and some other member functions being IF-NDR (ill-formed, no diagnostic required) in C++23 mode. #2457
      • This fixed a regression that was introduced by #2000 implementing P1989R2 Range Constructor For string_view in VS 2022 17.0.
    • Fixed C++20 <chrono> parsing to fail when the input is insufficient to supply the entire format string. #2523

    • Fixed an out-of-bounds read in ranges::find() with unreachable_sentinel. #2434
    • Added compiler bug workarounds for CUDA (involving [[nodiscard]] friend) to fix spurious cases of "warning C5240: 'nodiscard': attribute is ignored in this syntactic position". #2622
    • Removed ExecutionPolicy overloads of copy_backward() and move_backward() that were mistakenly implemented. They don't appear in the Standard because they would be useless. #2627
    • Added compiler bug workarounds for Clang (involving the ordering of constrained and unconstrained destructors) to fix compiler errors in <ranges> machinery. #2630
    • Fixed a bug affecting <future>'s use of <ppltasks.h> in Desktop XAML apps. #2654
    • Fixed a bug that prevented C++20 <chrono> from parsing fractional seconds as floating-point durations. #2638
    • Fixed <bit>'s countl_zero() returning incorrect results on ARM64 for 8-bit and 16-bit types. #2647

    • Fixed get_time() and time_get's 2-digit year logic. #2666
    • Fixed system_category().message() to behave correctly instead of returning "???" when the user language and system language are different. #2669
    • Fixed the ARM64EC implementations of atomic_thread_fence() and atomic<8-byte type>::store(). #2702
    • Fixed compiler errors in atomic<shared_ptr<T[]>>, atomic<shared_ptr<T[N]>>, atomic<weak_ptr<T[]>>, and atomic<weak_ptr<T[N]>>. #1339
    • Added overloads of <cmath>'s lerp() for arithmetic types. #2113
    • Fixed filesystem::directory_entry to work with FAT32 and exFAT. #2373
    • <filesystem> now handles special system files like hiberfil.sys. #2715

    • Fixed the visualizers for shared_ptr<void>, weak_ptr<void>, and unique_ptr<void, Deleter>. #2706
    • Fixed compiler errors in move_only_function when compiling <functional> in /std:c++latest mode with /Zc:alignedNew-. #2712
    • Implemented C++20's removal of the explicit specialization for allocator<void>. #2726
      • Note that allocator<void> is still supported, it just uses the primary template now.
    • Fixed "unresolved external symbol" linker errors in certain scenarios involving separately compiled third-party libraries. #2734 #2738
      • On x64, these errors mentioned __imp___std_init_once_begin_initialize and __imp___std_init_once_complete.
      • On x86, these errors mentioned __imp____std_init_once_begin_initialize@16 and __imp____std_init_once_complete@12.
      • This fixed a regression that was introduced by #2381 in VS 2022 17.2.
      • This fix was backported to VS 2022 17.2.5.
  • Improved performance:
    • Optimized rotl() and rotr() in <bit> for 8-bit and 16-bit integers by using compiler intrinsics. #2611
    • Optimized the vectorized implementation of reverse() for 32-bit trivial types. #2383
    • Improved <format> performance when the execution character set isn't self-synchronizing, by caching expensive calls to get codepage info. #2600
    • Added vectorized implementations of find(), count(), ranges::find(), and ranges::count(), with speedups ranging from 2.0x to 27.6x (times, not percent). #2434
    • Slightly improved the performance of <charconv> floating-point from_chars(). #2623
  • Improved throughput:

      • is_permutation(), sample(), rethrow_if_nested(), and default_searcher. #2219
      • <map> and <set>'s common machinery. #2287
      • polymorphic_allocator. #2471
      • basic_string_view and basic_string's find_first_of(), find_last_of(), find_first_not_of(), and find_last_not_of(). #2479 #2660
      • <regex>. #2484
      • Parallel inclusive_scan() and transform_inclusive_scan(). #2662
      • scoped_allocator_adaptor's operator==(). #2677
      • function, move_only_function, and bind(). #2668
      • vector<bool>::insert(). #2694
    • Replaced tag dispatch with SFINAE in subtract_with_carry_engine's internal machinery. #2693
    • Split <chrono> into a smaller internal header, improving throughput when other headers need only pre-C++20 <chrono> machinery. #2604
  • Enhanced behavior:
    • Changed <deque> to use scope guards instead of throw;, making debugging easier when exceptions are thrown. #2308
    • Merged an MSVC-specific attribute, allowing the compiler to improve its handling of constexpr dynamic allocation and constexpr unique_ptr. #2658
    • Implemented <format> grapheme clusterization when determining the width of a string for padding and alignment purposes. This is a "quality of implementation" feature recommended by N4910 [format.string.std]/11. #2119
    • Changed <strstream> to deprecate its classes instead of the entire header. #2680
    • C++98's unexpected() in <exception> was removed by C++17. As with almost all removals, we support an escape hatch to restore unexpected(), by defining _HAS_UNEXPECTED to 1. However, this escape hatch conflicts with C++23, which is reusing the identifier for unexpected<E> in <expected>. Therefore, the escape hatch is now blocked with an #error in C++23 mode. #2709
    • Added ASan (Address Sanitizer) annotations to <string>, allowing additional errors to be detected. #2196
    • <ciso646> now emits a warning in C++20 mode, as it was removed in that Standard. #2710
    • Temporarily disabled join_view for non-forward_ranges until LWG-3698 is resolved. #2727
    • <random> distributions now have non-const function call operators, making it easier to write portable code. #2732
  • Improved documentation:
    • Added comments to the test suite citing GitHub issues and LWG issues. #2433
    • Expanded a comment about the build system's use of /Os. #2708
  • Improved test coverage:
    • Dramatically improved the compiler memory consumption and compile time of two ranges algorithm tests. #2657
    • Removed /Za test coverage. #2714
  • Code cleanups:
    • Removed compiler bug workarounds. #2611
    • Various cleanups (described in detail in the PRs, not repeated here). #2595 #2621 #2656 #2673 #2674 #2675 #2676 #2678 #2679 #2686
    • Simplified the preprocessor logic in <stdatomic.h> for non-compiler tools. #2615
    • Removed test workarounds now that VCRuntime properly recognizes Clang's /std:c++20 and /std:c++latest modes. #2637
  • Infrastructure improvements:
    • Fixed the build system to avoid relinking any DLLs when rerunning CMake and Ninja with no other changes. #2606
    • Added format and validate targets to CMake, so it can run clang-format in parallel, and improved how Azure Pipelines runs the Code Format Validation check. #2671 #2697
    • Updated dependencies. #2611 #2651 #2714
      • Updated build compiler to VS 2022 17.3 Preview 1 (17.2 is now required).

  • Merged proposed resolutions for LWG issues (not yet accepted for the C++ Working Draft, but we've chosen to implement this speculatively):
  • Fixed bugs:
    • Fixed Clang compiler errors when using ranges::join_view. #2352
    • Fixed several runtime correctness bugs in std::string. #2305
    • Fixed a memory leak affecting a specific scenario in P0408R7 Efficient Access To basic_stringbuf's Buffer. #2361
    • Each call to ranges::clamp now correctly performs at most three projections. #1898
    • The STL no longer rejects Clang in CUDA mode, nor the cl /showIncludes /D__CUDACC__ ... command used by CUDA's msbuild integration to gather dependencies. #2075
    • Fixed allocator::is_always_equal to be deprecated, not removed, in C++20 mode. (It was deprecated by LWG-3170.) #2423
    • Fixed begin()/end() crashing for empty valarrays, which also affected range-based for-loops. #2435
    • Fixed regression in ranges::distance (from LWG-3392 which broke ranges::distance(some_array, s)) by speculatively implementing LWG-3664. #2522
    • Fixed basic_string::resize_and_overwrite() to no longer emit "warning C4018: signed/unsigned mismatch" when given certain user-defined function objects. #2525
    • Increased __cpp_lib_concepts to its final value for C++20, 202002L. #2559
      • It should have been updated in VS 2019 16.6 when P1964R2 "Replacing boolean With boolean-testable" was implemented by #565. The presence of that release (or any later release) can be detected by inspecting our implementation-specific macro _MSVC_STL_UPDATE. Coincidentally, the value of _MSVC_STL_UPDATE for VS 2019 16.6 was also 202002L.
    • Fixed numerous tiny bugs discovered by the libcxx test suite. #2499
    • Fixed a bug in <format> that sporadically caused incorrect output when formatting floating-point values in hex or scientific notation with extremely large precisions. #2569
    • Fixed a bug in <charconv> from_chars() float tiebreaking that produced incorrect results. This affected decimal strings that were at the exact midpoint of consecutive float values, within a narrow range (the smallest and largest affected values were "32768.009765625" and "131071.98828125"), where the tiebreaker rule wanted to round to "even" and "even" happened to be "down", but the implementation incorrectly rounded "up". (double was unaffected.) #2366
    • promise<T> now compiles when !is_default_constructible_v<T>. #2568
    • Moving from an optional<const T> now behaves like moving from a const T: it selects T's copy constructor. #2460
    • Fixed a bug in <format> that incorrectly accepted volatile arguments; the Standard currently says that they should be rejected. #2579
  • Improved performance:
    • Optimized rotl() and rotr() in <bit> for 32-bit and 64-bit integers by using compiler intrinsics. #2369
    • reverse_copy()'s vectorized implementation is now activated (for eligible types) in all Standard modes. Previously, only the C++14/17 modes activated this optimization; C++20/23 modes unintentionally used the plain implementation (correct but slower). #2416
    • Improved codegen for gcd() and lcm(). #2343
    • Improved <format> performance when the execution character set is self-synchronizing. For example, code page 1252 "ANSI Latin 1; Western European (Windows)" activates this optimization. The /utf-8 compiler option also activates this optimization. #2493
    • Improved codegen for generate_canonical. #2498
  • Improved throughput:
    • Used if constexpr instead of tag dispatch in:
      • Optimizations in find(). #2380
      • experimental::filesystem::directory_iterator. #2478
      • basic_string(first, last). #2480
  • Enhanced behavior:
    • Fixed new warnings emitted by Clang 13: -Wdeprecated-copy (in product and test code) and -Wunused-but-set-variable (in test code only). #2266
    • Added ASan (Address Sanitizer) annotations to <vector>, allowing additional errors to be detected. #2071 #2420 #2464 #2508
    • Added a debug assertion to allocator::deallocate(); passing a null pointer with a non-zero size is an error. #2412
    • For supply chain security, replaced checked-in OBJ files (generated by an internal tool aliasobj) with the linker's /ALTERNATENAME option (which is strictly more reproducible, although not officially documented). #2381
      • In certain scenarios involving separately compiled third-party libraries, this can cause "unresolved external symbol" linker errors. See issue #2655 for an explanation and workarounds.
  • Improved documentation:
    • Clarified the messages emitted by <format> and <ranges>. #2382
    • Added a comment explaining how LWG-3632 "unique_ptr 'Mandates: This constructor is not selected by class template argument deduction'" was already implemented. #2548
  • Improved test coverage:
    • Added test cases for the _BitScanForward optimization used by countr_zero() on older CPUs. #2337
    • Added tests for gcd() and lcm(). #2507
    • Added test coverage for deduplicated (topologically sorted) header units. #2516 #2563
    • Updated the libcxx test suite. #2499
  • Code cleanups:
    • Removed compiler bug workarounds. #2338 #2351 #2357 #2474 #2496
    • Updated test code to directly pass a format string to printf(), allowing the compiler to check it. #2346
    • Cleaned up clang-formatting. #2356
    • Changed the <charconv> test headers to use include guards, for closer alignment with libc++. #2372
    • Improved the clarity of vectorized algorithm implementations by replacing the magic numbers 27 and 78. #2377
    • Improved consistency by always saying friend constexpr instead of the reverse order. #2419
    • Simplified <ratio>'s implementation by using constexpr functions instead of template metaprogramming. #2450
    • Simplified an internal function for opening files. #2095
  • Infrastructure improvements:
    • Updated dependencies. #2474 #2496 #2514
      • Updated build compiler to VS 2022 17.1 Preview 5 (now required).
      • Updated Clang to 13.0.0 (now required).
      • Updated CMake to 3.22 (now required).
      • Updated Python to 3.10.2.
    • Added scripts to set INCLUDE, LIB, and PATH after building the repo. #2578
    • Azure Pipelines now uploads test logs as artifacts, making it easier to investigate test failures when lengthy command lines, compiler output, or runtime output are truncated in the web UI. #2575
  • Updated _MSVC_STL_UPDATE. #2374 #2455 #2519 #2602

  • Fixed bugs:
    • Fixed <complex> exp() and polar() for infinity and NaN inputs. #1584
    • Fixed compiler errors when comparing common_iterators of different types for equality. #2066
    • Attempting to actually call declval() now emits a static_assert citing the paragraph of the Standard that forbids this. (Previously, declval() was declared but not defined, which was too permissive.) #2101
    • Fixed basic_streambuf::seekoff() and basic_streambuf::seekpos() to work with custom pos_types. #2121
    • Restored our guarantee beyond the Standard that string_view is trivially move constructible. #2128
      • This fixed a regression that was introduced by #2000 implementing P1989R2 Range Constructor For string_view in VS 2022 17.0.
    • Fixed a bug where vector and string would terminate via noexcept instead of throwing length_error as desired when a size_t would be truncated to an allocator's narrower size_type. #2139
    • <istream> and <ostream> now properly catch and rethrow internal IO exceptions. #2033
    • Fixed <format> to correctly print hexfloats with large precisions. #2157
    • Fixed compiler errors when using constexpr vectors with certain user-defined allocators. #2161
    • Fixed silent bad codegen in ranges::stable_sort(), where for certain inputs it would neither sort nor permute the range. ranges::inplace_merge() was also affected. #2188
    • subtract_with_carry_engine's textual representation is now correct. #2088
    • Fixed a deadlock in the overload of condition_variable_any::wait_until taking stop_token. #2220
    • u8streampos, u16streampos, and u32streampos are now declared by <iosfwd> as required by the Standard after P0482R6 and P1148R0 were accepted. #2223
    • Fixed ARM64EC compiler errors in <limits>. #2306
    • Fixed heap corruption in fstream when calling putback() followed by close(). #2189
    • Fixed views::reverse to work properly with ranges::reverse_view lvalues. #2313
    • Fixed a bug where the STL's DLL was using Windows Vista's APIs for critical sections and condition variables, instead of the more efficient APIs that were introduced in Windows 7. This was specific to /MD (dynamic release) and the STL's GitHub CMake build system; it did not affect the legacy build system that's currently used for official builds of the MSVC toolset. #2314
    • Fixed a bug affecting older CPUs where the STL generated the newer tzcnt instruction instead of the fallback bsf instruction. This affected <bit>'s countr_zero() and countr_one(), <numeric>'s gcd() and lcm(), and vector<bool>'s optimized implementations of find() and relational/spaceship operators. #2333
    • Fixed minor conformance issues in basic_string. These changes were specified by P1148R0 "Cleaning Up [strings]", which was almost a pure rewording paper without normative impact. Oops! #2222
    • Fixed ranges::find_end() to return correct values for bidirectional common ranges. #2270
    • Fixed compiler errors affecting ranges::sort(), ranges::search(), and other ranges machinery. #2290
    • Fixed array<T, 0>, allowing it to compile when T is not default constructible. #2296
    • Fixed allocator::allocate_at_least() which was improperly annotated with __declspec(allocator). #2328
  • Improved performance:
    • Optimized steady_clock::now() when QueryPerformanceFrequency() is exactly 10 MHz, which is very common for modern PCs. #2086
    • Improved codegen for x86 atomic loads. #2110
    • Optimized the fallback implementation of popcount(), which is used when compiler intrinsics are unavailable (and is also used at compile time). #2079
    • Slightly improved codegen when <format> prints a pointer in hexadecimal. #2097
    • Optimized <ranges> non-propagating-cache for trivially destructible types. #2118
    • Improved ARM64 codegen for popcount(), using compiler intrinsics. #2127
    • Extended the memcpy(), memmove(), and memcmp() optimizations in various algorithms to handle more types. #2158
    • Significantly improved the performance of bitset::count() by using the same machinery as popcount(). #2201
    • Also improved the performance of std::count() for vector<bool> by using popcount() machinery in a more optimizer-friendly way. #2203
    • weak_ptr's converting constructors now avoid locking except when necessary to ensure correctness in virtual inheritance scenarios. #2282
      • For example, converting weak_ptr<T> to weak_ptr<const T> now avoids locking.
    • Removed a duplicated assignment in filesystem::create_directories(). #2304
    • Optimized is_permutation() for reversed sequences. #2043
  • Improved throughput:
    • Replaced tag dispatch with if constexpr in container copy/move assignment. #2217
    • <format> now avoids instantiating vformat() unless and until it's called. #2331
  • Enhanced behavior:
    • Changed numeric_limits<long double>::max_digits10 to handle both 64-bit and 80-bit long double, by restoring the original logic that was used before VS 2017 15.8.
      • Note: 80-bit long double remains unsupported by MSVC.
    • C++ headers now emit clear #error messages when they're compiled as C. #2148
      • This applies to both the "C++ library headers" like <vector> and the "C++ headers for C library facilities" like <cstdio>.
    • Improved the wording of binary_semaphore's debug check messages. #2293
  • Improved documentation:
    • Cited LWG-3581 "The range constructor makes basic_string_view not trivially move constructible" in our implementation of its proposed resolution. #2175
    • Removed comments that were citing GH-489, now that LWG-3530 "BUILTIN-PTR-MEOW should not opt the type out of syntactic checks" has been officially resolved by the June 2021 virtual plenary meeting. #2186
  • Improved test coverage:
    • Removed a constructible_from test case that was invalidated by recent changes to the Core Language. #2107
    • Fixed a test for next_permutation() and prev_permutation(); the algorithms were fine, but the test never worked and was never called. #2137
    • Fixed the test harness to handle non-English Visual Studio installations running on Windows with non-UTF-8 encodings. #2145
    • Added /arch:AVX2 to the matrix of compiler options that's used when testing <bit>. #2150
    • Skipped more flaky tests in the legacy tr1 test suite. #2202

    • Cleaned up comments and clang-formatting. #2136
    • Removed a spurious overload of operator>>(basic_istream&&, basic_string&). This didn't affect correctness, but it was neither necessary nor depicted by the Standard. #2138
    • Cleaned up various things, notably simplifying exception_ptr's operators for C++20 and emitting a clear error message when compiling <stdatomic.h> as C. #2140
    • Removed unnecessary code in <cctype> that was attempting to defend against macroized isalnum etc. #2147
    • Removed an unnecessary reinterpret_cast, and changed some reinterpret_casts from void* to T* to use static_cast instead. #2096
    • Removed an unnecessary definition of our internal macro _HAS_CXX23 from our central internal header yvals_core.h. #2226
    • Removed comments that were citing proposed resolutions for LWG issues, now that those issues have been officially resolved by the October 2021 virtual plenary meeting. #2269
    • Removed unnecessary (void) casts now that MSVC emits fewer spurious warnings about unreferenced parameters. #2280

      • The counted_iterator part is implemented; the input range adaptors part is not yet implemented.
  • Fixed bugs:

    • Fixed a compiler error in ranges::take_view. #1844
    • Fixed improper partitioning of forward ranges in the parallel algorithms. #1753
    • Fixed an unintentionally exported symbol in the import library. #1927

    • Fixed a compiler error when calling format_to() in a specialization of formatter (see #1961 for an example). #1874
    • Fixed compiler errors when calling views::drop and views::take with types that aren't integers, but are convertible to integers (e.g. integral_constant). #1958
    • Fixed a compiler error when calling constexpr vector::emplace(position, args...). #1962
    • Fixed jthread to provide native_handle(). #1966
    • Fixed filesystem::remove() to delete read-only files, as required by the Standard. #1559
    • Fixed mersenne_twister_engine: #1631
      • Fixed the seeding algorithm to follow N4892 [rand.eng.mers]/8, avoiding an all-zero state. (This is a runtime special case.)
      • Fixed the engine's behavior when m == n or n == 1. (This is a compile-time special case, which doesn't affect mt19937 and mt19937_64 at all.)
      • Fixed operator<<() to avoid printing a trailing space after the engine's textual representation.
    • Fixed <chrono> to adjust for leap seconds when formatting file_time. #1879
    • Fixed chrono::from_stream() to allow a year and a day-of-year to be parsed to a time_point. #1940
    • Fixed filesystem::u8path() to accept char8_t sources. #1943

      • Also fixed the parsing of local_time with a UTC offset.
    • Fixed <chrono> formatting to correctly estimate string widths (see N4892 [format.string.std]/9). #2017
    • Fixed a major regression in the _ITERATOR_DEBUG_LEVEL == 2 machinery, where a multithreaded program in debug mode could crash when one thread is modifying a container and another thread is destroying iterators. #2060
      • This regression affected all Standard modes (C++14/17/20/23) and was introduced by #1546 in VS 2019 16.10.
      • Fixed in both VS 2019 16.11.4 and VS 2022 17.0.
    • Fixed a compiler error in pmr::map<K, pair<A, B>>::operator[]. #2023

    • bit_ceil() now enforces its precondition during constexpr evaluation, as required by the Standard. #2041
    • clog is no longer tied to cout, and similarly for wclog and wcout, following the Standard. #2056
    • In <ranges>, when filter_view, drop_view, drop_while_view, and reverse_view store a cached position into an underlying view, they now properly invalidate that cached position when the underlying view is moved from. #1931
  • Improved performance:
    • Slightly improved debug codegen for vector<bool>, basic_string, and map/multimap/set/multiset's empty() member functions. #1836
    • Fixed bloated codegen for <format>. #1874
    • Dramatically improved the performance of std::find() and std::count() for vector<bool>, with measured speedups between 19x and 26x (times, not percent). #1131
    • Extended our memcmp/memcpy/memchr optimizations to ranges with contiguous iterators and unreachable sentinels. #1810
    • <format> now detects when it's writing to a back_insert_iterator for a basic_string or a vector, and performs a faster call to insert() at the end() of the container. #1894
    • std::byte now activates the "trivially swappable" optimization in reverse() and variant::swap(), so it'll have the same performance as unsigned char. #2044
    • Extended the vectorization optimization in std::swap_ranges() to ranges::swap_ranges(), and enhanced it to work for arbitrary contiguous iterators. #2048
    • Reduced debug codegen size; an internal assertion macro was emitting completely unused, potentially long strings for function names. #2054
  • Improved throughput:
    • <format> and <chrono> now avoid including <array>. #2031
  • Enhanced behavior:
    • Added a visualizer for source_location. #1837
    • Added [[nodiscard]] to the stoi() family of functions in <string> and to various functions in <locale> (collate member functions, has_facet(), and the isalnum() and tolower() families). #1809
    • Added a debug mode precondition check to forward_list::splice_after(). #2057
    • Added visualizers for bind_front(), u8string (and its iterators), default_sentinel_t, unreachable_sentinel_t, ranges::empty_view, ranges::single_view, ranges::iota_view (and its iterator/sentinel), ranges::ref_view, thread, thread::id, jthread, and filesystem::path. #1856
  • Improved test coverage:
    • Added test coverage for our implementation-specific guarantees that span and basic_string_view are trivially copyable; P2251 may eventually Standardize these guarantees. #2015
    • Fixed the ranges test machinery to properly specialize std::basic_common_reference; it was unintentionally relying on identical bugs in MSVC and Clang, but EDG correctly diagnosed that the code was non-Standard. #2013
    • Fixed a test (for the abs() overloads in <cmath> and <cstdlib>) that unintentionally hadn't been running in our new GitHub test harness. #2070
  • Code cleanups:
    • Removed compiler bug workarounds. #1759 #1778 #1920
    • Removed unnecessary C casts. #1843
    • The STL now uses Standard _Pragma instead of non-Standard __pragma (when possible) to internally suppress warnings. #1342
    • <format> now uses _First/_Last parameter names (instead of _Begin/_End) to be consistent with the rest of the STL. (The connotations are that first/last refers to an arbitrary range that might be a subrange, while begin/end refers to an entire container/view.) #1951
    • Removed comments that were citing proposed resolutions for LWG issues, now that those issues have been officially resolved by the June 2021 virtual plenary meeting. #1967
    • Improved vector's implementation, also using if constexpr to simplify code. #1771
    • Simplified <format>'s implementation of type-erased argument storage. #1907
    • Filed LWG-3566 "Constraint recursion for operator<=>(optional<T>, U)" and updated our implementation's comment accordingly. #2011
    • Simplified the backwards loop in char_traits::move(). #2055
    • Marked all overriding functions with override, and removed redundant virtual keywords. #2069
    • REMOVED THE "SHOUTY COMMENT BANNERS" LIKE // CLASS TEMPLATE vector; SEE #306 FOR THE RATIONALE. #2074
    • Removed an unnecessary check for self-assignment in the compile-time implementation of char_traits::move(). #2083
  • Infrastructure improvements:
    • Updated dependencies. #1884 #1920 #1953 #2014 #2064 #2081
      • Updated build compiler to VS 2022 17.0 Preview 2 (now required).
      • Updated Clang to 12.0.0 (now required).
      • Updated CMake to 3.20 (now required).
      • Updated Python to 3.9.6.
      • Updated vcpkg for Boost 1.76.0 (now required).
  • Build system improvements:
  • Updated _MSVC_STL_UPDATE. Also updated _MSVC_STL_VERSION to 143 for the VS 2022 release series. #1897 #1955 #2035 #2091
