The C++ Standard moves at a fast pace. Probably, not all developers caught up with C++11/14 yet and recently we got C++17. Now it’ time to prepare C++20!
A few weeks ago The C++ Committee had an official ISO meeting in Jacksonville, FL (12-17 March 2018) where they worked hard on the new specification.
Besides many significant things that were discussed at the meeting like modules, concepts, ranges, The C++ Committee accepted one hugely anticipated feature: deprecation of raw pointers!

While it may become true (deprecating raw pointers), I'm sure all compilers will allow some flag to allow them, even deprecated.
There are so much C++99 code still running and being maintained that changing all raw pointers to smart pointers is more risky than worth.
