All D related projects.

I think it would be nice if the d announcements newsgroup contained all the old D version release postings. It would be useful if it had the date and the time and original D newsgroup e-mail of when a D version was released. An example would be including the release note for .106 and .108 even though it is past it would be useful to put it in the announcements section.

Wouldn't it be cool to be able to actually download those ooooold releases? I'm sure someone has those stockpiled somewhere (hmm, maybe Walter). The DM FTP only goes back to 102 it seems. It'd be cool to see just how far the language has come.

I'd prefer those old versions to just disappear <g>. I keep 'em around here, though, for legal reasons. One never knows when some future bozo will claim a patent on some part of D, or claim a copyright on it, and I'll need the old software around to prove prior art. Having old copies around has saved me from more than one legal disaster.
