digitalmars.D.announce - Visual D 0.3.9. released

Hi,

I'd like to announce the release of Visual D 0.3.9.

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

This release features a cool search window that allows to quickly browse 
symbols read from compiler generated JSON files. It also allows fast 
file lookup in large projects.

Major changes in this version:

   * new file/symbol search window
   * word-completion can now be expanded to symbol lookup by pressing 
Ctrl-Space again
   * now uses machine-translated Windows SDK instead of std.windows plus 
a lot of manual translated additions

Recent version not announced here included:

   * function parameter tooltips
   * fixed problems on x64-Windows
   * added cv2pdb to installer

Visual D can be downloaded at http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald
You will also find a short tour through some of Visual D's features there.

I've also tried to make the site a bit more user friendly, I hope you 
like it.

Hi Rainer,

You're doing a great job on this, keep it up!

Is it possible for you to add the symbols for visuald.dll to the
installer as well? VisualD 0.3.8 crashed on me yesterday and I want to
investigate further. (It crashed when I started typing pragma
(comment,"..."); and I'm not sure that syntax is even correct.

The syntax is correct, but I didn't think comment is a supported pragma. -- ... <IXOYE><

Good idea. As long as it is troublesome to build the plugin from scratch due to prerequisites and a collection of patches, it could be helpful to get as much information as possible for bug reports. I've tried to create a release version with debug symbols, but it crashes dmd, causes assertion and does not compile. I've fixed the crash, but the assertions remain. I'll have to investigate... Rainer PS: I don't think the pragma is causing any special trouble, Visual D has just a scanner, it does not do any code analysis.

The new version 0.3.10 is now built that way, with the symbols available in the download area.
 
 I've tried to create a release version with debug symbols, but it 
 crashes dmd, causes assertion and does not compile.
 
 I've fixed the crash, but the assertions remain. I'll have to 
 investigate...

This turned out to be bad type references, that were only reported when combining a release build with building debug information. I'll post to bugzilla later...

hard to tell without further information. what OS are you running, esp. 32-bit or 64-bit? a crashdump might help. to create it, run procdump (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/dd996900.aspx) after starting VS like this procdump -e devenv.exe and let it crash. procdump should then write a file "devenv.dmp", that you can attach to a report here: http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald/newticket thanks, Rainer
