Hi Hans,

If that is truely the case, then we have a perception issue. Engineers simply are not in the practice of having to ask a vendor to implement new features of a standard for which the vendor makes a 
product.   From an engineers perspective, having to do that is silly.

So our job is to educate people that if they want the new language features, they have to make requests and file bug reports against the tools
