dm.D.announce? The article hardly is relevant news to D users – unfortunately, the author just mentions that he has had a look at D a few years ago. Not to say that bringing the community's attention to D-related articles would be a bad thing, of course… David

An interesting quotation from the various threads:
The nbl doesn't exist yet. It has to make the mediocre corporate 
developer much more productive as java did over c++. Nothing can 
do that as of now. There are several technically superior 
languages compared to java but that isn't what is needed to be 
the nbl.<

Another quotation:
The next big language [...] it'll be something that builds 
profiling and unit testing and better source control support 
right into the language, compiler, and tools.<

That's interesting, but how do you add some source control support in a language? I remember only things like #region #endregion of C# that are for the IDE: http://msdn.microsoft.com/it-it/library/9a1ybwek%28v=vs.80%29.aspx Bye, bearophile
