I saw that on the todo list along with the auto_ptr replacement and decided to take a stab at it.

Thank you for taking the initiative here, and thanks also for updating the TODO list!

doing the auto_ptr replacement part since when I looked through the code it seems they are only used in the sch_lib_table files, which I believe would be part of the overhaul for v6 with the new file formats. Whoever ends up working with those parts can do the replacements then

Yep, it's likely to be an area of heavy development. C++17 is (sadly) not likely to be in KiCad any time soon, as the older supported platforms don't have compiler support by default.

that will take care of all the parts in the C++11 technical todo list.

There's probably more, if you see anything deserving of a place, let me know, and I'll add it to the list.

Thanks again,
