How much has C++ changed over the years?

I'm just wondering how useful the things I am learning will be in 10 years
The more things change, the more they stay the same.*

* A proverb making the observation that turbulent changes do not affect reality on a deeper level other than to cement the status quo.

Over the last 10 years - substantially, but not in the way that would have rendered any of 2003 knowledge useless. A few things got deprecated, but it's easy enough to learn what replaced them and why, and if you paid attention to boost and other developments, you would have been using the replacements already.
In the next 10 years.. it's probably going to change about as much as it did in the last 10.
We can't seem to figure out the best way to do things the first time.
