Pretty cool. Look forward to the blog post. It looks like the call to arms you made at DConf this year to focus on quality and professionalism are paying off. In particular, I've noticed the speed with which bugs are being handled has improved recently. Lots of good stuff. Congratulations on your work. Joseph

Hmmm, dodgy metaphor. The departure of the ringbearers heralds the new age, but it's the one in which all the beautiful magical things of Middle Earth will fade away and be lost ... :-P (Can you tell who re-read LOTR recently?:-)

Sorry for being skeptic, but after so many years of D advertising are you sure that 5112 lines in Facebook code is a proof of D rise or a quality? In recent years (may be I am biased here) I have very poor signals of D engaging into mainstream - from language popularuty indexes (which are criticized for not showing real state of things), IT forums or watching in which lang are some projects written. Aside from speaking whether 5112 lines of code is really a good sign, there is separate issue regarding quality. When you will look at claim that some language (lets take for example C# or Java) "supports feature X", that really means that the feature is supported. In D this for sure means that the feature is either broken or misdesigned (shared libraries, routine code breakages, obsolete ms32 object format, AA arrays, shared, const postblits, odd template crosstalk bugs, type system holes, segfaulting lambdas, unstable stdlib, absent of third-party libraries). Untill this stuff is fixed this is a huge barrier irrespective of whether D is used in Facebook or not.

Agree. You might want to try a userscript I forked, which: 1. Highlights unread comments. 2. Allows to navigate through unread comments with Ctrl + Up / Ctrl + Down. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/179121

Reddit Enhancement Suite makes things much nicer, and having a Reddit Gold subscription allows new posts to be highlighted which RES can then navigate by.

 Compared to the original version (written in C++) we've

 In all likelihood we'll follow up with a blog post describing

Congratulations! Thanks Andrei for pushing hard a Facebook and thanks to all core D devs for their hard work too.

It's fantastic. I think that every new project that they are going to be in C++, D should to be used instead of.

Not yet. I'm scrambling to hit the proverbial iron while it's hot, and blogging had to give priority to that. I estimate a couple more weeks before I have something out. Thanks for the interest. Andrei
