Nah, it just means that - for the first time in what seems like weeks - no one is bikeshedding. ;)

Octarine is the only worthy color for a bikeshed, and you should all know that by now.

The only problem then is that the building has to have six walls (plus the roof and floor) which makes it horribly inconvenient to carpet.

No carpet. Hard flooring all the way. I'm going to go with wood flooring. No sense doing it unless you're going to do it right.

Mmmm....that wouldl be "berber". This is a shed, people! If there's a floor at all it's just plywood! CDX at best. But there's no point to this. Betelgeuse is going to go supernova any day now anyway: (http://blogs.discovery.com/space_disco/2009/06/warning-betelgeuse-is-shrinking-supernova-or-supernothing.html) Or, more correctly, Betelgeuse has already gone supernova and the fiery waves of destruction will arrive any day now!! I say we paint the shed asbestos-colored. Paul

No; clearly the flooring should be made out of the same stuff they use to make those super-bouncy balls.

Is it that time of autumn again, when programmers shed their bikes? (Most people agree that the spectacle would be much more visually impressive if they could just agree on a bike color before winter covers it all)

I hope I'm not spoiling anything, but here are other things I know is going on: 1. An updated gdb patch was submitted. It was tested against the upcoming 2.032 release (and maybe the D1 equivalent?). Walter has made some tweaks to how debug info is written. 2. Bartosz is rewriting thread related stuff. He has an upcoming blog on reference counting which is part of his implementation. As part of this, I know Bartosz got a few shared related bugs fixed. I'm unsure if they're in bugzilla or not...

Yeah I have been reading Bartosz's blog a lot lately, I especially liked his entries on thin-locks and the use of shared qualifiers, which is why I can't wait to toy with his concepts once D fully supports the primitives to implement them. The recent thread about CPUs/GPUs also is of big interest, I really like Sweeney's concept of having four different processing models to form an all-around framework. I will definitely be working on an implementation soon.

I'm pretty sure that T[new] arrays won't be in the next release. Or if they are, the release will be delayed for an long time still. I have a couple of nice patches in the next release, so I'm hoping it won't be too far off. But I suspect it might be. Walter also has his Compiler Construction Seminar coming up. I don't know if that is occupying much of his time. I hope he's had a holiday, too.

The next update will be largely another boatload of bug fixes. Not T[new].

 That's one thing I've been really anxious to hear something about, even if 
 it's just "not likely to ever happen", so I know whether or not to plan a 
 more permanent workaround than my current "manually patch and recompile 
 every release". 

Adding a new switch means it'll have to be there for a long time (messing with peoples' makefiles is a bad thing). I'd like to avoid having a large number of compiler switches, and so would like more experience that such a switch is a compelling improvement.
