The C++ committee issued a Technical Corrigendum (TC) which was
accepted by the ISO bodies. The "C++ 2003" standard is the "C++ 1998"
standard with the modifications of the TC applied. These modifications
do not introduce changes but only correct problems (which, admittedly,
occasionally is change): the TC clarifies ambiguities, removes
contradictions, adds omissions (i.e. specifications for entities
mentioned but not specified), etc.

C++0x refers to a standard which not only corrected but also extended.
It is expected that C++0x has a bigger standard C++ library and better
support for various paradigms. What will really change in C++0x is,
however, completely open.
