Hello,

I know we're not ready for this yet, but will there be any plans on 
writing the D compiler in D sometime in the future?

Thanks for all the answers, but I was looking more for an official compiler, but it's great that there's people working on it. I don't know about anybody else, but languages that can compile themselves make me smile. Casey

http://github.com/bhelyer/sdc Working on it. It can compile a tiny tiny (tiny) subset (which changes as I work on it) of D2. Long way off from 1.0 (or even 0.1), though.
