Boost

The Boost C++ library is, in essence, a launching pad for future extensions to the C++ standard. The May 15th update adds The Boost Lambda Library, which lets you define ad-hoc anonymous functions for use with Standard Template Library (STL) expressions like for_each and sort.

This looks very handy for modern STL-heavy programming; C++ has essentially become a new language in the last few years.
