digitalmars.D.announce - Visual D 0.3.35 released - semantic analysis considered stable

Hi,

I have uploaded a new version of Visual D. Apart from changes to the 
build system, the semantic analysis is now considered stable enough to 
leave experimental state. I guess too many people just didn't know that 
it existed at all, because it was buried somewhere in the global 
options. Although it hasn't improved a lot (no UFCS, no class templates, 
no operator overloading) it seems quite useful.

Some excerpts from the change log:

   * a number of bug fixes and improvements to the build system, e.g.
     - new linker option to disable using global and standard
       library search paths
     - added preliminary support for upcoming dmd win64 compiler
     - added console application project template with
       configurations for DMD and GDC for Win32 and x86
   * semantic analysis now enabled by default
   * "goto definition" now uses semantic analysis to find declaration
   * added build project to build Visual D from within Visual Studio
     itself without the need to modify makefiles
   * now installed as an "extension" to VS 2010 and VS 2012
   * fixed spurious crashes due to bug in precise garbage collection

The full list of changes can be found 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 2005-12 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

Visual D is completely written in D, the source code is available at 
github (https://github.com/rainers/visuald) and dsource 
(http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald/browser/trunk).
