DJGPP uses the latest ported version of the GNU C++ compiler and
libraries.  Its support for "standard" C++ depends entirely on the
willingness of people to port the latest software.  Work is in progress
on a port of gcc 2.8.0, as well as the 2.8.0 libraries.  When they are
done, the packages will be added to the DJGPP distribution, and DJGPP
will support as much of the standard as GNU has implemented.

P.S.:  Don't complain that DJGPP doesn't follow standards unless you are
willing to offer proof that it doesn't.
