New DlangIDE version is released.

Prebuilt win32 binaries are available on 
https://github.com/buggins/dlangide/releases

Milestone 0.8 is reached.
List of 56 issues closed in this milestone: 
https://github.com/buggins/dlangide/milestone/2?closed=1

As well, many DlangUI changes were implemented for some of 
DlangIDE features.

Thank you for everyone who reported issues / sent PRs and feature 
requests.

Now I'm considering DlangIDE as mostly usable.

I've only had time to take a quick look, but this IDE seems pretty good. I was surprised at how fast it loaded up, and how it downloaded the dependencies for the sample project on it's own. The text rendering needs work though. Honestly, I passed this editor up the first time I came across it because of the way the text looks. It reminds me of Visual Studio 2005. I couldn't help but assume the IDE was outdated and probably be abandon-ware. I would definitely change the default font to the platform-IDE defaults: Visual Studio: Consolas XCode: Menlo Regular Also, FreeType has made improvements lately, and now does a much better job of rendering fonts at small sizes(no so blurry). In particular 2.8.1, which just came out, implements a patent-free substitute for MS style clear-type rendering[1][2].

For Windows, added libfreetype 2.8.1 dlls. Made additional fixes for better font rendering. Win32 binaries are uploaded to https://github.com/buggins/dlangide/releases/tag/v0.8.2 To disable freetype, delete libfreetype-6.dll Consolas/Menlo are already selected if "Default" font is chosen for editors.

Hey, thanks! Looks good. One small thing though - when you use the LCD/BGR style fonts, you get a mismatch between the font metrics and bitmap size. So if you're using FT_LOAD_TARGET_LCD, then some of these may be true: glyph.bitmap_left != (glyph.metrics.horiBearingX >> 6); glyph.bitmap_top != (glyph.metrics.horiBearingY >> 6); glyph.bitmap.width != (glyph.metrics.width >> 6); glyph.bitmap.rows != (glyph.metrics.height >> 6); The result could be a crash, clipping, or misalignment of glyphs, depending on the assumptions made by your blitting code. I asked about this on the FT mailing list, and unfortunately, they don't believe that the 1 or 2 pixels of padding added to the bitmap to accommodate the LCD rendering belongs in metrics. The fix is simply using bitmap_left, bitmap_top, bitmap.width, bitmap.height, instead of the metrics. I was looking at the commits and saw that you added kerning, so was wondering if you hit this problem.

Thank you for advice. It looks like I faced this problem when one of fonts was selected for UI. Will fix. As well, I see wrong monotype fonts character placement not aligned properly.

It does. It's possible to change paddings, margins, look&feel of scrollbar buttons and backgrounds.

Currently SVG images are not supported. This feature is planned for one of future releases. Workaround: you can provide PNG icons for different screen DPI.

well don't. I just tested the windows build. 1. F5 doesnt build+run the application 2. I have to install dmd/D compiler separately 3. no intellisense This is not usable by any reasonable definition as an IDE.

1. Ctrl+F5 does. You can change shortcuts in ~/.dlangide/shortcuts.json (on Windows - in currentUser/AppData/.dlangide/shortcuts.json 2. Why should IDE include compiler. It's easy to download it from official site. 3. Is Code completion/GoToDefinition/Call tips/Doc comments enough? If so, it's present. No refactoring support.

The shortcuts should be identical to Visual Studio, anything else is a waste of time to learn and configure. The IDE should contain the compiler for convenience, this way dlang.org can point to your download and say "install and press run" Code completion isnt working for me on windows, no clue what's missing.

Visual Studio? Why not Vim? Why not Xamarin Studio? Why not IDEA? Why not Sublime or tons of other popular configurations? If you want Visual Studio, then just use Visual Studio.

No.

I think that including DMD & Co. into DlangIde is not the right approach, but offering one D-NOW download package including everything needed to get started DMD, DUB, IDE etc. seams interesting. Especially adding a collection of short D examples: Maybe those from the website homepage + examples D-Lang Tour + some of Adams arsd. So you start one installation and in the end you have a bunch of small valuable programs to play around. Regards mt.

I don't get it. Install dlangide, install DMD (which comes with dub). What's the difficulty in this? If you want to debug, asm, etc. then you should have enough knowledge such that getting a debugger etc. is not a big deal. Nodejs doesn't have any if that and its core packages are much worst than D's (except HTTP). But we use it cus its got packages for everything s beginners want to do. code.dlang.org We wanna get the job done.

Thanks for the new release! Just checked the windows version and it works well. waiting for the vim mode support (https://github.com/buggins/dlangide/issues/86) to switch it as my main IDE.

So far C++ integration is not planned. I can include it to some milestone after 1.0

That would be great. Even something without coloring, formatting or completion would make me happy - just so I could drag my C++ sources into the project and have them built/linked without having maintain separate make-files, projects, etc.. Thanks
