TIOBE experts recalled that once C ++ market share exceeded 15%. Difficulties with the release of new versions of the standard language provoked a drop in interest in C ++ and a reduction in this share. With the release of C ++ 11, C ++ 14 and C ++ 17, and most importantly, with their support by the main compilers, the popularity of the language began to revive.
