http://comeaucomputing.com leads to a placeholder page with
"comeaucomputing.com expired on 12/17/2012 and is pending renewal or
deletion" message.

Anyone knows what happened?

They either got too busy to pay attention to such a small part of their
business as some web site, or have gone out of business (<sigh>). I've
not had a pleasure of communicating with anybody at Comeau Computing
since June 2011. Not that I tried hard, mind you. Last message from
Greg contained a vague notion about their "changing or adding something
to" their "business model", whatever that meant.

No idea, but http://www.comeaucomputing.com/ still works as expected.

Now not for me either. It seems my browser cache was playing tricks with
me.

And apologies for the earlier multi-post. That was a system hiccup.

The wikipedia page on the company highlights their
support for the export keyword. With the changes
around export, it may have been difficult.
A company that invests a lot in something and then
has the rug pulled out from under them...

If the old 'export' was a rug, it was a very thin one! I bet they knew
as soon as they had implemented it, a decade ago or so, that it was
pointless. (There were some details about this in the paper where the
feature's removal was proposed.)

So, they've paid their registrar... The most recent reference on their
pages is still to 2008. Which means they haven't updated the website
since that time. There is no "C++11", only "C++0x". Bleak, I think, is
the word.
