I think it would be good for all which want to invest their time 
in learning D to know more about the history and probably the 
future of D.

So I propose to make a new page for dlang.org:

History and Future of D.

Where the most important and interesting dates are collected, 
showing the progress of the last years.

If there is already such a page please tell me. (OK may be the 
Wikipedia page)

1999 Start of Development by Walter Bright
2007...Date? Release of D 1.0
201?...Date? Release of D 2.0
2009    Release of:  The D Programming Language 1st Edition by 
Andrei Alexandrescu

2015-08-19 Release of:  Programming in D: Tutorial and Reference 
by Ali Cehreli

.........  D Language Foundation setup.

2016 The D Language Foundation became a tax-exempt non-profit 
organization

2016 DLang Tour online?

2017.... DMD 100% free

          DCompute (GPU-Computation) in LDC

2017.... GDC to be included in GCC


What should be in the list:

New layout of dlang.org?

DUB + code.dlang.org official?

Vibe.d first public release?

First Dconf ?

The release Days of the other D books! Adam + Kai + Mike +?

New DIP Process?

D Blog since?

Adams Week in D since?

Forum = Mailinglist + Newsgroup + Website since?

Please post your dates, of exceptional occurrences which you 
think should be highlighted here.

I would try to collect this dates and put them in the D Wiki, 
with as many links to the different recourses as possible. If it 
is a good read it might get a direct link from the Dtour or the 
homepage.

Regards mt.

D frontend written in d?
And mentioning that building the first D frontend version takes 0m14s (on an 2GHz intel server) instead of 1m50s of the last version with the C++ frontend (and that it still takes 14 seconds to build because the backend is still in C++).

I would recommend going through the changelogs and picking out some key developments. At a minimum, it provides information like D 2.0 was released June 17, 2007 (D 1.001 Jan. 23, 2007). I don't see much on the prior history. http://dlang.org/changelog/ http://www.digitalmars.com/d/1.0/changelog.html

Thank you, will do so. Please post events (even without date) you think are important. First release of your IDE/Plugin or whatever made you more comfortable using D. Since when is the IRC channel in use?

I see a lot of changes from 2.020 to 2.031. That period looks like there are a lot of things going on.
