Is C++ back?

''The State of the Language: An Interview with Bjarne Stroustrup C++ founding father assesses the language on the eve of its new standard. ...
(Q) Is C++ usage really declining, as some biased analysts and journalists have been trying to convince us for years (often not without ulterior motives), or is this complete nonsense?
(A) It's probably not complete nonsense. ... I'd suspect a net decrease sometime during 2002-2004 and a net increase in 2005-2007, but I doubt anyone really knows. ...

Interview here.
More details in the article "Evolving a language for and in the real world: C++ 1991-2006": here.
