Hi All,

I'm not aware of fixed-point being a WG21 agenda item since SG14's July 2020 meeting.

LEWG and SG6 discussed the Numerics TS in September of last year. P1889 was one of the papers, and it mentions fixed-point, so you might want to take a look at those minutes.

sci@lists.isocpp.org is the reflector for SG6.

Cheers,
John

Thank you, but it seems like all the papers that are mentioned are closed because of inactivity.

It seems like John got busy with other things as it so often happens, I am well aware of his work, but I was hoping there was something new being actively worked on.

That said, John McFarlane is possibly also someone who could shed some light on this question?

Best
Paul

John Macfarlane would be the person to talk to:
