I don't remember seeing this formally announced yet. So I'll announce it myself.

I noticed that "TobiasWassermann" edited the DocComments/Intro page at Wiki4D
(http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?DocComments/Intro) to make an
announcement of sorts: "In November a german D-Book will be released. Can you
put it on the intro page beside the advice for the japanese book? The title
will be "Programmieren in D", ISBN: 978-3939084693".

I found the book listed at Amazon.de:
http://www.amazon.de/Programmieren-D-Tobias-Wassermann/dp/3939084697

Here's some German from that page (which I don't know how to read)...

Produktbeschreibungen
Kurzbeschreibung
Die Sprache D bringt die Vorteile von C, C++, C#, Java und anderen Sprachen
zusammen - verzichtet dabei jedoch auf die Makel. D kann bei der Performance C
durchaus das Wasser reichen und hat dabei einige interessante Features, die
andere Sprachen nicht bieten. Wenn Sie bereits C, Java oder C# kennen, können
Sie mit dieser neuen Sprache effektiver arbeiten. Das vorliegende Buch soll
dabei den Umstieg erleichtern und in zwei bis drei Umsteigerkapiteln auf das
vorhandene Wissen aufsetzen.

Über den Autor
Tobias Wassermann ist Softwareentwickler in verschiedenen Branchen und
Systemadministrator für Linux- und Windows-Server. Er hat schon verschiedene
Artikel für das Entwickler Magazin und Fachbücher geschrieben. Christian Speer
ist Softwareentwickler im Multi-Media-Bereich und administriert Linux-Server
für verschiedene Projekte. Dabei setzt er immer wieder auf neue Techniken,
weshalb auch der Kontakt zu D zu Stande gekommen ist.


And an English translation (by Google Translate)...

water with the performance C and has thereby some interesting features, which
do not offer other languages. If you already know C, Java or C#, you can work
with this new language more effectively. The available book is thereby
transferred facilitates and in two to three Umsteigerkapiteln on the existing
knowledge to touch down.

Just to be clear: the above is a different book, written by Manfred Hansen and counting 140 pages. The book on Amazon is written by Tobias Wassermann and Christian Speer, counting 230 pages. Bastiaan.

Thanks for the announcement.

I think, the publisher will also bring out a translated english version of the
book if it sells good in the Germany (and also Austria and Switzerland).

Are there any English books about D? (It's quite difficult to search just for D)

Try searching for "D language" or "D programming language". -- JanC
