Note however, that these days we are also triumphally announcing that we
are feature complete ;) Morally that kind of announcement seems to me
quite inconsistent with saying that the support is experimental. That we
have bugs, that's for sure, but still talking about experimental when we
have a reference released Standard, and we are feature complete, seems
to me a good way to confuse the users... But I don't have a strong
opinion here, really. Just say in the announcement what suits your
taste, try to be minimally consistent and I'm Ok with anything.

Minimally, I would talk about "improved support": the evolution from
-std=c++0x to -std=c++11 meant that we aren't in experimental mode anymore.
From speaking to Jason he's pretty adamant it's still experimental for now :-)
My understanding was that -std=c++11 changed just because the standard
was published, not because our support was finished.
