Counting graphs without large cliques

Consider the problem of counting the Kr+1-free graphs of order n. It is well known (and an old result) that the number of such graphs is 2(1-1/r)n^2/2 + o(n^2). However, if r tends to infinity with n, then this is not a satisfactory answer. Very recently, it has been become possible to prove an analogous result that covers a large range of values for r: if r = o((log n)1/5), then there are 2(1-1/r)n^2/2 + o(n^2/r) Kr+1-free graphs of order n. The proof is based on the recent hypergraph container theorems of Saxton/Thomason and Balogh/Morris/Samotij, in combination with a theorem of Lovász and Simonovits.
