digitalmars.D - Future of D Interface Files?

Hi,

what is the future of D interface files? Somehow they work except for 
new features package.d files or  properties.
I got the information that D interface files shouldn't be used anymore
as this functionality is outdated/broken
(d.D.learn) <lhok7c$2451$1 digitalmars.com>

On the other side this seems like a big missing base feature of D if I 
cannot create *.lib files and ship the D interface files.
(Closed source, payed lib files...)

Are there plans to make them fully available again in the future?

Kind regards
André

They are not, and will never be, deprecated. If it does not work properly, please file issues. -Steve
