digitalmars.D.announce - the disadvantage of D currently

I think D is one excellent programming langauge, but there are some
disadvantage of D currently.
First, there are no one good IDE for D, such as Eclipse for java, MS visual
studio for .net, although there are some IDE for D, but they are all simple
and ugly, so I still write D with vim.
Second, there are no many useful Libs(except the basic Phobos) and server
frameworks written for D, which can speed up our efficiency  of write
application. Although tango has done some works for D1, these aren't enough.
(When I wrote server programs on Unix, I often used one server framework which
were got from Postfix, supporting many server modes).
Third, there are no good application written by D such as Nginx, Squid, BDB,
Postfix, Mysql, Sqlite, Postgresql, Tomcat, Hibenate, Spring, etc.
Fourth, the D2's stablity is also another one, someone maybe say this one is
the reason of all the above, but I don't think we should complain about this
overmuch like tango team. We should all
Of course, all the disadvantages above may be solved in future, these are just
the time problems.

Not sure the status but these are attempts to get D support in eclipse: http://www.dsource.org/projects/descent http://www.dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/Mmrnmhrm Other ide's include: http://www.dsource.org/projects/poseidon http://www.techopinion.net/start/node/6 and few commercial sollutions such as: http://www.n-brain.net/una_ide.html http://zeusedit.com/d.html http://www.slickedit.com/content/view/498/#DLanguageSupport

You are very uninformed dsource.org/projects has a lot of usefull libs and it doesnt take much to wrap or port c++ to D with tools and manuals available to help you. http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?PortingOverview BTW What libraries are you specifically missing and why dont you get your hands dirty if it means engough to you?
 Third, there are no good application written by D such as Nginx, Squid,

You are gona offend alot of people here saying that. Many D apps are very good. I think D didnt exist when most of those projects there started but if you just need to interface to them that is very possible already for the most.
 Fourth, the D2's stablity is also another one, someone maybe say this

It is getting more stable with every release which is very often. Anyway D.announce is here for annoucements not for moaning and complaints.
