Three issues currently prevent compiling to C++20:

  1. The static_cast in DECLARE_ONE_BOOL_OPERATOR can generate casts between incompatible types.
  • This can be fixed by only using static_cast for integral types.
  1. Deprecated arithmetic conversion on enumerations.
  1. Deprecated implicit this capture.

Otherwise we can for example end up with generating static_cast between const and non-const pointers.

Use std::underlying_type_t to convert from an enum to its underlying type.

Depends on D142855

Implicit this capture through = is deprecated in C++20.

Depends on D142856

  • This also affects the ARM64 simulator, but any updates there should happen in the main repository first.

FWIW, the chances of us ever pulling another VIXL version (with the simulator) are very small; for several years we've been hacking freely on our local copy.
