Before C++11, the C++ Standard Library did not have much support for working with time. C++11 changed all that and introduced the chrono library as part of the Standard Library. With its introduction, C++ gained a standard way to work with durations, clocks, and time points. It allows you to perform arithmetic operations with durations and time points, to convert between different units of time, and more. The library also comes with a number of clocks, including a high-resolution clock which makes it easy to quickly time how long a piece of code executes, e.g. for benchmarking, all without needing any additional libraries.
C++20 has extended the chrono library and added support for calendars, dates, and time zones. It allows you to represent specific days of a year, even something like the 3rd Monday of July or the last day of February, and to perform arithmetic operations with dates. Time can now be expressed in specific time zones, and, of course, converting time between different time zones is supported as well.
