it seems to me quite the opposite. most of these ideas are actually fairly
old. they just never got implemented in or were never supported by a widely
used language. i've seen very few "new" ideas show up in programming
languages, but what i am happy to see is the relatively careful integration
of some of the most useful and powerful idioms from other languages (lisp,
python and so forth) into a language where i can actually control precisely
what happens (C++). it turns out that there are two levels of care: first,
those responsible for the std:: namespace (and even boost:: to some extent),
and then myself as an individual programmer making choices about what to
use.

These things come and go, every year has its new crop.
