"Bjarne Stroustrup’s Plan for Bringing Safety to C++"
https://thenewstack.io/bjarne-stroustrups-plan-for-bringing-safety-to-c/

"At the CppCon C++ conference, the C++ creator identified the specific
kinds of safety measures sorely needed in the programming language."

"Early in the presentation, Stroustrup shared a slide titled “Safety is
not just type safety,” highlighting everything from resource leaks and
overflows to memory corruption and timing errors. There’s concurrency
errors, termination errors — and of course, type errors. “Often the
safety mentioned is just memory safety — that’s not enough… And the need
to interoperate with other languages, including C++ and C, tend not to
be mentioned. And the cost of conversion can be ferocious. That’s rarely
mentioned…”"

"“And anyway — which other language? The way I have seen it argued, we
are going to have C++ replaced by about seven different languages, as of
suggestions of about now. By the time it happens — 40 years from now —
we’ll probably have 20 different ones, and they have to interoperate.
This is going to be difficult.”"
