I know this does not say much, especially considering that 
TransactSQL is declared "language of the year" on TIOBE. :)

Anyway, good to see that D is gaining popularity.

#22 was not good enough. :) Being in the first 20 is what matters as new programmers who visit TIOBE out of curiousity may become interested in D when they see it in the list. Everything below 20 is more/less invisible to the common visitor there...

Wow, D is at #18 now, the biggest jump of any top-20 language since last Jan, except for F#. Either D had a great year or their new algorithm really favors D, maybe both.

If anyone really *did* use TIOBE as a measure for language success, you may find me doing this to them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCwLirQS2-o
