Couple of bug fixes + new refactoring feature:

- [Expression Evaluator] Began with the expression eval stuff -- 
added few class   stubs
- [Resolver] Fixed 2 small completion bugs (very precise, indeed! 
:-D)
- [Parser] Fixed block boundaries determination bug
- [Highlighting] Small highlighting change (added __vector 
keyword and recolored 'mixin')
- [Building/Settings] Small usability improvement
- [Settings] Fixed saving-bug
- [Generic] Add 'lib' prefix to library name when creating new 
(linux/mac) projects
- [Refactoring] Added renaming validation check
- [Refactoring] Finished a rough implementation of symbol import 
refactoring   (accessible via keystroke or context menu - just 
hover an undefined symbol, and right-click)
- [Internal] Further code refactoring -- a lot of code could be 
abstracted
- [Completion] Improved method parameter insight

Great job, Alex. As always. For what it's worth, I don't like the new "mixin" coloring. It's colored like a type now, which doesn't make sense to me (in some cases it does, aka: mixin Template name). One of the things I like about MonoDevelop is that I can color seporate many different things: types, attributes, flow control, etc.. but now mixin looks like I'm defining a variable, which isn't usually how I use mixins. Also, code completion seems to randomly die in this release. Not sure exactly what causes it since it seems to only happens when working with larger files and randomly. I think it might be something to do with template variadic parameters. If I come across something a more concrete, I'll post an bug report.

Meh, I guess I'll highlight mixin like 'private' and 'const' are highlighted - so as it was more like an attribute, not a type anymore :)

Yeah sure, I cleaned up a lot of stuff - perhaps some hopefully minor things got broken - and variadic parameters aren't really implemented

Awesome, thank you!

I've been doing a lot with mixin templates lately, so that's probably it.

I need some help with Mono-D.

I am on Linux 64 and I try to use both DMD 2.958 and GDC-4.6.3

However, I find difficult to:

  -set the Toolchain per project; apparently, only global option 
(Edit->Preferences->Other->D->Compiler Toolchains) exists

  -add libraries per project; again, only global option 
(Edit->Preferences->Other->D->Compiler Toolchains->Default 
Libraries exists)

  -the GDC toolchain keeps passing some unknown parameters to the 
compiler: for example, for the "Debug ARguments"->"Executable", 
the passed arguments are:

  -g -debug $sources $libs $includes -od$objectsDirectory -of"$exe"

  of which all of "-debug" and "-od$objectsDirectory" and 
"-of"$exe"" are unknown to gdc (and similar for the others Build 
configurations)

  And finally: what should I put in that "Default Libraries" test 
box for DMD and for GDC toolchains to link with some C libraries 
that the gcc accepts as "-lmediastreamer" and "-lortp"? I should 
mention they are shared libraries: /usr/lib/libmediastreamer.so 
and /usr/lib/libortp.so, so there is no .a file that DMD could 
access.

  Compiling with gdc from the command line and adding 
-lmediastreamer -lortp works! Why Mono-D cannot be convinced to 
create such a simple compilation line?

I use MonoDevelop 2.8.0.6.3 with (apparently) the latest Mono-D, 
ie. 0.3.5, installed according to: 
http://mono-d.alexanderbothe.com/?page_id=9

Thank you

These are the flags used by DMD. If you can point Mono-D to "gdmd" instead of "gdc" it might work. gdmd is a wrapper around gdc that convert dmd flags to gdc flags. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Because I've never used gdc before to compile D programs. I probably should do more testing concerning toolchains etc. Anyway thanks for the feedback, I'll add these issues to the todo list.

I cannot. GDMD toolchain is not even present among those in Mono-D. OTOH, I still do not know how to pass -lortp regular flag to the toolchain, in order to link with that libortp.so library.

Right-click the project node in the solution explorer and open up the Properties -- in the Build->Compiling section you can enter custom libraries as well as linker & compiler arguments so it'll finally include the specified library.
