I not only enjoyed the slides content from D. Walter's and Andrei's talk, I
also liked the visual design.  It looks like it was done with latex beamer? 
If so, can anyone tell me what theme was used, or maybe a pointer to the
source code for the slides?

I prepared the initial raw text, and Andrei expanded on it and then used latex to produce the finished presentation. I like the results a lot, too, and am in the process of learning latex myself so I can do a better job with my own presentations. I'll try and dig up the .tex file.

Any chance this could be a excuse for getting the D ddoc stuff in a format that can be converted to .tex? The only major issue there is that it has lots of HTML tag hard coded in. One minor issue is that there is no way (that I knwon of) to get dmd to generate multiple ddoc output files with anything but the default extension.

One of my goals is to get Ddoc to generate .tex output as well as html. What's stood in the way is I don't know latex, but that's changing.

Isn't Ddoc already prepared for generating non-HTML documentation, because of macros?

Oh, I see. Phobo's Ddoc is using HTML instead of macros... no?

Phobo's Ddoc is using HTML _AND_ macros. (it was HTML to start with and has slowly been turning into macros)

I found some inconveniences though: you cannot select text in the presentation file, nor can you search for anything (seems the textual information is missing?) -- Bruno Medeiros - MSc in CS/E student http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?BrunoMedeiros#D
