What's the scope of phobos ..in future .. close to the metal .. or general purpose.. I mean what can we expect in a mid term ? No heresies, just want to know. where we stand in, let's say, about 12 month. //- my 2 cents Collections //- IMO we need a full set of mutable and immutable collections. Further we need an idea on how to implement thread safe observable collections. () DataStreams //- We need a way to stream whatever comes into our mind. Compile- and Run- Time reflection should be en par.. Sockets and Concurrency //- 1. We need a stable socket implementation to implement NNTP,POP,IMAP ,HTTP, DAV whatdaheck. support. In opposite to the most Phobos users I hate the idea of having a CURL binding. Let's eat our own dog food. Finally all the async. communication stuff is far away from what CURL can offer... //- 2. SSL //- 3. :) beside what have sockets done for us lately.. XML and XSL, X parsing/translating .. // IMO D needs suppport for server side protocols ..WSDL, SOAP, REST.. at least.. we need that shi* Hate to say it 'cause this stuff is not very interesting (4 me) Database //- IMO we need fresh bindings to the most interesting databases. and indeed a /D/ DBC standard based on Interfaces.. GUI // IMO we need a modern, D2 made wxWidgets .. ... bjoern
