The D community is now hanging out over at the new newsgroup. I hope to 
see all of you there...

*The new D newsgroup*
Web: http://www.digitalmars.com/drn-bin/wwwnews?digitalmars.D
Newsgroup: news://news.digitalmars.com/digitalmars.D

More information about the D newsgroups:
http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?NewsDmD
(There are other NG's relating to specific topics, such as bugs, gnu, dtl.)

By the way, there's also a terrific wiki for D. Its apt name is *Wiki4D*.

Here are a couple of the most useful pages for newbies:

Have fun!

Is there no way to make this old newsgroup read-only ? Too many cross-posts lately... --anders

Maybe we should make it so that only followups can be posted to this 'group. But it is possible to make the server return an adequate human-readable error message to this effect? Perhaps "This is an old newsgroup, accepting only followups to existing threads. For new threads, use digitalmars.D instead." Stewart. -- My e-mail is valid but not my primary mailbox. Please keep replies on the 'group where everyone may benefit.
