What are the exit conditions for graduating from std.experimental.* to

Has anything graduated yet?

ndslice is deprecated https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/4946 It is hard to maintain both Phobos and Mir forks. Allocators are useful but they are not betterC. I will fork them anyway if I will need to use them for production.

We should be able to take care of this with simple modularization techniques. And there's little worry about breakage because it's still experimental. Could you please submit fine-grained bug reports a la "this can't be done because this static constructor is in the same module as this independently useful artifact"? Or whatever the matter is. Then each issue can be looked at and decided upon properly. Thanks. -- Andrei

Have not reviewed std.allocator code for betterC mode. Basic idea is here https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17060 Thanks, Ilya

I think it should have been accepted by the community and there shouldn't be any design concern or usability issues. However, this is a chicken-and-egg problem as most people don't want to use `experimental` thoroughly in production software. Furthermore the exact criteria aren't defined which lead to the weird state that `std.experimental.allocator` is considered stable by most of the community. The real issue is that moving from `experimental` to Phobos means that the API effectively can't be changed anymore due to aversion against deprecations and imho it's quite difficult to guarantee that an API is superb.

1) allocator ------------ You may want to see this discussion: http://forum.dlang.org/post/hxwadyrnvzvutrdcgsdp forum.dlang.org 2) logger ---------- I think sth. like the capability to do async logging is needed. [1] https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/3194 3) typecons ------------ Both `Wrap` and `Final` were added as part of 2.072.
 ndslice is deprecated https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/4946
 It is hard to maintain both Phobos and Mir forks.
Yep, I fully agree with Ilya here. Whenever there's a change in Mir, it will be released almost instantly with a new version. This means that thanks to DUB a user can easily upgrade to check out the greatest & latest, but also stay on a stable version if he wishes so. With Phobos one is usually tied to the bundled Phobos version of one's DMD compiler release. You may also see Ilya's proposal for a more modular standard library: http://forum.dlang.org/post/phexetutyelrssyrucvw forum.dlang.org

Promotion of std.logger has been officially stalled until reference counted strings are part of D. I think this was done because the current code uses the GC a lot; not sure. RC strings were being pushed heavily by Walter and Andrei until it was realized that in order for it to be safe, there had to be a lot of holes in safe plugged and new additions to the compiler. Walter is still periodically working on safe, but I'd say RC strings landing in master is two years away minimum.

I totally forgot about that, I guess I need to start to write things down. Sorry for the noise.
