Forthcoming update of C++ standard will not include concepts!
This the major backoff is very unfortunate, in my opinion, for C++'s future. Anyhow, there is a strong reasoning behind the decision. WG experienced the lack of resources, and a threatening amount of open questions and inconsistencies related to concepts.
Besides, there is no proper and up to date C++ compiler implementing the feature, which made impossible to verify ideas. All that might delay the C++0x standard up to 2012 or even 2015.
As result WG's decided to move concepts out of scope of the nearest update.
I hope very much that concepts will follow soon after the standard.
