is there any plan to use more C++11 featurese not mentioned here?

I just ask it, because many of us still use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with
its default compiler - GCC 4.6. (Now EFL and Nix port builds fine.)

So my question is if we will need GCC 4.7 or 4.8 in the near future
because of using C++11 featurese not supported by older compilers?

You can find here the GCC's C++11 support table:
