Some of the noteworthy changes compared to Tiger 2015:
- Use of even more C++ 2011 features
The compiler introduces the following C++ 2011 features:
(standard) smart pointers (
general-purpose initializer lists;
new function declarator syntax;
non-static data member initializers;

- C++ scanner
We introduce a C++ scanner this year, still generated by Flex, but implemented as classes. The management of the scanner’s inputs has been improved and responsibilities shared between the scanner and the driver (
- More Git Usage
Starting this year, we deliver code with gaps exclusively through the tc-base public Git repository. We no longer provide tarballs nor patches as a means to update students’ code bases.
- Changes in the language regarding object-oriented constructs
nilkeyword has been made compatible with objects.
Many stylistics changes have been performed, mainly to match the EPITA Coding Style.
