Awesome news! I think we need to take the hiccup as a warning to be more mindful of compilers and library bugs reported on behalf of QtD. Andrei

Thanks! I find it reasonable to lower our expectations of the language/tools for a while. I've decided to go on without const and other goodies like the scarcely implemented "alias this". For now, the most important for me are the issues with struct lifetime management. For example, destructors should be called on global struct instances. And this one is critical: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3516 It would be great if we soon had a complete and debugged implementation of the struct semantics described in TDPL.

Yes, I know it's an important one.

I'll try to find time for that on the weekend. Even fixing English grammar, spelling and stylistic errors on the wiki would help :)
 Sincerely,

This is indeed good news. I don't do enough with GUIs, but having GUI library(s) will be a big requirement in D succeeding Good Luck. Is anyone using QtD also on the beta mailing list? Don has taking on a point that we should not have known regressions newer than something like dmd 2.37 (until all known regressions have been eliminated) And this will be good for all projects. And Gour, I suppose you get some thanks for giving QtD the pat on the back they missed. Good luck.

Qt ia not only GUI - it also have network, database and data structures classes. Which makes me wonder ( to the Qt guys): do you plan, once the data structures bindings are done, to add the ranges interfaces to them?

From my (very limited) experience with ranges, they are a bit awkward when you need to implement recursive traversal of some data structures. Other than that, I think there is no reason we shouldn't try to implement them.

Thanks! I'm not using QtD in my current project but it is 100% sure that I'll want to use it in the future. I would love to help but I need a lot more practice with the language (and time).

Yay! Good luck, and hope Walter and co will give your bug reports some higher priority. I think that is the right thing to do now. -- Simen
