Ten years may be too short for most techniques to become widely used.
Even parser generators and SSA form, which are probably as successful
as any technique, have taken longer to catch on. E.g., SSA form has
only been used in GCC a few years ago, and lots of people still write
parsers by hand.
Concerning trends, I see a few:
- Multi-core CPUs (and SMT) require better support for multi-threaded
programs (but with language support, auto-parallelization is too
hard). In that vein, there has been a lot of work published on
software transactional memory in recent years; we'll see if that
- Using static analysis and type checking techniques for determining
additional properties of programs, e.g., wrt security.
