 So, are you saying that it might be possible to create a D plugin for NB 6.7?
 Also, what is ANTLR?

Perhaps this links can help you, the interview is a bit old and I've seen no news about it, in the forum, you can see there is some people interested in such a plugin: http://blogs.sun.com/geertjan/entry/interview_author_of_d_programming http://forums.netbeans.org/topic9967.html Bear in mind, this doesn't mean that it's sometthing easy to do, but there are many language support plugins already to use as a basis.
 PS :what happens to Netbeans since ORACLE is the new SUN Owner?

There has been many hot threads on this topic in the Netbeans forum. Nothing for sure yet, but a lot of people has invested a lot of time with it, specially those who build applications based on the Netbeans Platform: http://platform.netbeans.org/screenshots.html I don't see it going in the near future, if Oracle drops support for it, the most likely is that a community will form to continue its development. Some people suggested that the core developers could create a company to guide core development and sell premium services. Nothing for sure yet... HTH, cheers, Daniel
