digitalmars.D - phobos and windows api

Hi All,

I'm relatively new to D and it's supporting libs - sorry for dumb 
questions.

As I understand Phobos winapi support is still not complete. E.c. 
GetWindowLong and GetWindowLongPtr are missing. Is there any plans to 
reflect full windows api in std.c.windows? How about unicode support?

Yet I'm not quiet understand Phobos status. Is it only Walter who 
maintain/develop it? Whats the plans/roadmap for future?

What about Ares - it says it intend to be replacement for Phobos. Is it 
will be an official replacement - what Walter think of it? 'Official' is 
maybe not good word for it, what I mean is, currently to use Ares some 
hacks must be done. It seems dmd is not supposed to use anything in 
place of Phobos. Will it changes eventually?

There have been a number of efforts to translate the Windows API headers. See digitalmars.D/26225

Hopefully trash it , salvage the good parts, and make a new standard library , as soon as D stops adopting new features.

What hacks ? I think eventually Ares plans to be a full replacement to phobos. "Serg Kovrov" <dyh pathlink.com> wrote in message news:drqb2h$pab$1 digitaldaemon.com...

Eventually, yes. But not everything is in Ares yet that is in Phobos. This is being discussed in the Ares forum at dsource. jcc7
