I took a look at your source code and it appears your using the 'final'

The problem is, the binary ODB package uses an old-ish version of GCC
(4.5.1 to be precise). While override control was only added in 4.7.

We are planning to upgrade to a newer version at some point, just
didn't have a chance to do that yet.

In the meantime, the best option for you would be to build the ODB
compiler from source. Seeing that you are using C++11, you must
have a fairly recent version of GCC already installed. It only
makes sense for ODB to also use this version. For details on how
to build ODB from source, see the INSTALL file that comes with
the package.
