Last time I asked:


It was prefered to provide a C++98 ABI compatible library for the time
being. If you start providing a C++11 ABI library people will not be
able to mix symbols from your lib and other part of debian system. As
far as I understand the whole debian should transition to C++11 ABI at
the same time.
