c++ - Is DMC still being developed?
Is the Digital Mars C++ compiler still being developed? In spite of the numerous problems/bugs, there has not been a new release for quite some time. I used DMC while learning C++ about 4 years ago (I am not a programmer or a regular C++ user, so I need to re-learn it every time I use it ... that's the reason for the newbie-type questions ...), and I liked it very much. At that time it was a very good compiler compared to the alternatives. Bruce Eckel's book recommended it over the other compilers, as being more standards compliant. It generated very fast numerical code, compared gcc. It was a very small download, affordable for people with dial-up connections. But now it seems to lag behind the other compilers, both in speed and standards compliance. I can understand if Mr. Bright decided not to spend any more time on it, after all DMC is freeware. But I'd really hate to see DMC abandoned.

It looks like it is, given that the 8.50 update was just posted! What is it you need to do that you can't?
