Gregor said he got busy with grad school, so basically nothing is happening with it. Maybe when summer break time rolls around? But I'm not holding my breath. --bb

Why does every good D project get more or less abandoned? :(

My hypothesis: - D1 is felt as a dead end, there's not much purpose in writing very big programs in it if you will have a D2 beta in some months. - There are more D projects than D developers. D is mostly a niche language still. - Most D projects are created for nonprofessional purposes, by students and they have a life too. - Many D projects are experiments. Bye, bearophile

isn't THAT hard in the end.

least fixes some bugs etc), dsss is a pretty nifty tool. But universities indeed seem to be the most promising users of D. I think some good libraries providing Matlab-style functionality could heavily boost D's popularity.

Got it in one. I'm waiting for D2 before enhancing Bud any more. ... then there's my unreleased text processor (macros) that also waits for D2. ... and the version of the Euphoria language in D. D1 is a non-starter for me now. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia skype: derek.j.parnell

Because D is a young man thing. "Young" as in about to dive into school/job/having wife & kids/whatever. We start a project and then real life kicks in.

Fully agree, 100%. This will be true until D becomes more viable in the commercial scene.

Not quite, since Gregor is very busy with studying. Do you face any specific problems?

Yes, I posted it in the learn section. Maybe my dsss setup is wrong, but I can't find any information about that anywhere.
