In this episode we discuss Herb Sutter's new proposal, p0709, "Zero-overhead deterministic exceptions", a.k.a. "Static Exceptions" - and a couple of supporting proposals from Niall Douglas (p1028 and p1029).

We talk about what the proposed feature is, how it works, and why it is so signifiant. Find out why Jon is, "really excited" about it!
