digitalmars.D - Stability of D as language - When may D be considered stable?

I'm looking into D from time to time and I have already coded some little
apps. My problem is, I don't know when the language definition stays as it is.
I thougth the version 2.0 would bring this, but now there is all these things
about const.

What I ask for is perhaps some idea about when the language will be stable. In
version 2.1? Or will it be 3.0?

I like D a lot and I'm really interested in using it.

D has two versions, the stable 1.0, and 2.0, the development version. When 2.0 is done, it will become stable, and 3.0 (or pray 2.9 or similar) will be the development/unstable version. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

D 1.0 is considered stable - see http://www.digitalmars.com/d/1.0/ for the official specification. The 2.0 branch is still in active design/development. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:thecybershadow gmail.com
