Hi all,
Registration for mentoring organization has begun for GSoC 2014 !
As mentionned in the announce [1], it will end the 14th of 
February, 2014.

Will Digital Mars be a mentoring organisation again ?
And what are the problems that should be tackled so far ?

 From what I've read here, the main problems are :
- Non-precise GC;
- Lack of a "good" GUI library;
- Support for others platform, mainly ARM and phones;
- Shared libraries (?).

I've seen the list of ideas for the last year [2], but couldn't 
find any message about what the outcome was. Anyone knows ?

I hope someone will work on arm support. So we can use D to play with raspberry pi / beaglebone black and so on...
