digitalmars.D - newbie needs help

hi,
i'm just struggling to get up and running with d. i've had experience (in
school) using java, c, c++, etc. 

my main problem is: i can't seem to find a good IDE. 

the only one i've found that supports D at all is zeus, which i'm not really
liking. and please don't anyone mention emacs or vim.. i need an IDE, not just a
texteditor.

there are a bunch of broken links to "andy's scite D properties", but no working
downloads; same with the "DIDE" editor. and i can't get LEDS running in win32,
even though (it seems) all of the libs it depends upon have win32 versions.

secondly, i can't seem to find a debugger.

anyway, i've very eager to try d, since it seems like just what i need, however
i'm finding it a LOT harder to get started than with, say, c++.

if anyone has any helpful info/etc., please let me know.
thanks,
raigan

You should take a look at the version of D. We are at v0.109 of dmd, which is NOT 1.0 or higher (http://www.digitalmars.com/d//changelog.html). There is an IDE for D already - DIDE -, it`s only not available atm, so go get dmd and a texteditor (check out this: http://www.wikiservice.at/d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport) and don`t moan around here because of not having a compiler - it`s not final yet!

Alex, i think this is not an appropriate tone to speak to a newbee. Another soul lost. -eye

There`s a little difference between 'newbie *programmers*' and 'newbies'. First one wants to learn the programming language - second one seems just to search an automaticated IDE to click around and get a nice window or something. I`m sorry for my tone, but I don`t think that Raigan is going to forget D, just because of my answer. Apart from my tone I just wanted to help this 'newbie' to get his way into D.
