digitalmars.D.announce - Visual D 0.3.33 uses a server for parsing and semantic analysis

Hi,

Visual D 0.3.33 has just been released. The biggest improvement is the 
move of the parser and the semantic analysis into a local COM server 
process, so that the IDE is no longer suffering from stalls caused by 
garbage collections on more than small amounts of memory.

Some other, not so spectacular changes include

   * debugger project settings now stored in solution options file, not 
in project file
   * cv2pdb: new version 0.25 that supports VS2012
   * cv2pdb: exposed command line options in the project options
   * intellisense tool tip now shows enumerator value
   * version highlighting now supports the "version(V):" syntax
   * tweaked vsi2d to also convert the Windows 8 SDK and VS2012 SDK
   * various improvements to parser and semantic analysis

The full list of changes is at 
http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald/wiki/VersionHistory

Visual D is a Visual Studio package providing both project management 
and language services for the D programming language. It works with 
Visual Studio 2005-11 as well as the free Visual Studio Shells.

The Visual D installer can be downloaded from its website at 
http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald

The source code is now also available on github: 
https://github.com/rainers/visuald

I love you!!! You have no idea how annoying that could get sometimes...

Indeed, I've moved back to Visual once again :)

I run it on the developer preview version, and others have reported success with the VS2012 RC version (though a restart/reboot seemed necessary).
