digitalmars.D.announce - Visual D 0.3.24 released

Hi,

as the newest version of Visual D includes some major improvements, I'd 
like to announce its release here.

Visual D is a Visual Studio package providing both project management 
and language services for the D programming language. It works with 
Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010 as well as the free Visual Studio Shells.

Added features worth noting include

   * support for Object Browser and Class View

   * runs a parser in the background to underline syntax errors (no 
semantic analysis)

   * new version of the mago debugger that fixes some issues with 
exceptions and improves the call stack display

Highlights in previous versions not announced here:

   * support for Code Definition Window

   * search and replace based on the D tokenizer, ignoring white spaces 
and comments and supporting brace matching

   * new compilation modes: compile and link seperately, compile only

Visual D comes with an easy installer and can be downloaded here: 
http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald

Best,
Rainer

Many thanks for the great work you put into this IDE. Since I switched to it from Descent, it is great productivity booster for me. The debugger support is fantastic. One improvement I would welcome - is project manager that automatically matches file system structure and allows to inc/exclude specific files and folders - similarly as in C#.

i still hope that Rainer getting interested in Descent like features - especially the compile-time debugging...

I'm very impressed by what Descent can do. The parser is a tiny step into that direction. I don't know how long it will take to make the next step (semantic analysis) ;-)

If you want to include a whole bunch of files into a project you simply drag packages (folders) and VD automatically creates the same folder structure in your project. What still does not work is moving those folders around inside of the project structure ;)

Awesome tool! Previously I used Code::Blocks on Windows, now I think I'm addicted to VisualD ;) -- Dmitry Olshansky
