Last month, and most of 2008: 12, same as now. My gut feeling is that D will shoot up significantly in April when D2 is finalized and TDPL is out. In 20/20 hindsight, I think releasing D1 was kind of a bad idea because it was an "artificial" release before D had achieved anything near what it had been trying to achieve. Furthermore, a lot of people probably are just waiting on D2 being stable because they don't want to use D1 and then deal with migration headaches. Since I write a lot of non-production scientific code that doesn't need to be maintained long-term, I've been using D2 for about a year now, and I absolutely love it. Even D1 seems very weak by comparison, and if I ever have to touch Java or C++ again, just shoot me.
