[vtk-developers] vtkAtomic vs std::atomic, can we change yet?

Hi all,

Now that C++11 is required in VTK, could vtkAtomic switch to using std::atomic instead of the current 3 implementations (gcc atomics, Apple atomics, or Windows atomics)?  Or are our minimum required environments not ready for that?

I ask because the APIs currently used in the macOS case are deprecated, and thus it would be best to stop using them...
