I guess a heads up for folk working on D bindings to GTK+:

http://www.gtk.org/language-bindings.php

Indicates D has bindings to 2.12, 2.14, 2.16, 2.18, 2.20 and 2.22, but
not 2.24 and, most problematically, not 3.0.

The link from this page points at:
http://www.dsource.org/projects/gtkd. (It is interestingly ironic that
this tells Linux users to have the latest GTK+ libraries installed given
the data from the previous paragraph ;-)

On the other hand it seems that https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD
is the actual home, but I am not sure there is a reference to this on
the dsource page.

Being a Debian user I was interested in https://code.google.com/p/d-apt/
but it seems the instructions for using this break since
http://d-apt.googlecode.com/files results in a 404.  Also I am assuming
it is an oversight that Tango-D2 is packaged but Phobos is not?

Git/svn currently binds GTK 2.24. But 3.0 and up is indeed not supported jet.

Up untill the GTK 3.0 release using GtkD with an newer release didn't cause any problems, i've changed it to latest 2.x release.
 On the other hand it seems that https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD
 is the actual home, but I am not sure there is a reference to this on
 the dsource page.

Both pages are up to date.

While you can't view the directory with a browser, all the needed files are accessible. And i think Phobos is in the dmd package. -- Mike Wey

Good to know. Might be worth changing the website to say GTK 2.2x is supported rather than 2.22? [...]

Perhaps add some cross-referencing to make it clear the pages are about the same stuff? [...]

OK, that'll work for me as soon as I can get at the packages with aptitude and approx.

Hummm... here too. Perhaps browser and wget look for Packages and then Packages.txt whereas aptitude/apt-get do not? I note that the Debian repositories have Package.gz not Package.txt, might this be indicative that plain text should be Packages? This is certainly the filename I use on my personal deb repository. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

This is a correct behaviour. If you want to list all files in d-apt use this link: https://code.google.com/p/d-apt/downloads/list Otherwise, if you want to include d-apt as an apt server, just add the line (without additional dots): deb http://d-apt.googlecode.com/files / at the file: /etc/apt/sources.list
 Also I am assuming it is an oversight that Tango-D2 is
 packaged but Phobos is not?

This is not correct. As phobos is the standard d library, it's included into the dmd package, so there are both phobos and tango libraries available on d-apt server. If you install tango package, you'll able to compile this code: file: test.d --- import tango.io.Stdout; import std.stdio; void main() { Stdout("hello with tango!").newline; writeln("hello with phobos!"); } --- $ dmd `pkg-config --cflags --libs tango` -run test.d About packages on d-apt. I understand that dmd package can be split into two or more packages (compiler, druntime, phobos library with headers, help, etc.). This is the initial apt version, and there is a long way to walk.

http://d-apt.googlecode.com/files/./Packages in unix-like system is same than: http://d-apt.googlecode.com/files/Packages

On d-apt server there are 4 control files: Packages (text plain file containing data about all deb packages) Packages.gz (Packages file compressed) Release (contains several checksums of Packages and Packages.gz files) Release.gpg (Release signed with d-apt key. verifiable with public key on d-apt-keyring) In an standard apt server there are more control files, but these four are the basic to make the d-apt server to work.
