This presentation is on what Scott Meyers has called the marquee feature of C++11. Rvalue references is a feature introduced in the new 2011 ISO C++ Standard that enables both move semantics and perfect forwarding. Move semantics improves exception-safe coding, increases code clarity, and and can enable dramatic increases in performance. Perfect forwarding makes it much easier to create certain kinds of libraries that combine power and expressiveness with ease of use..
