Could you please reply to the comment at http://www.heise.de/forum/heise-Developer/News-Kommentare/Programmiersprache-D-Compiler-ist-jetzt-selbst-in-D-geschrieben/Was-ist-denn-noch-so-in-D-geschrieben-Wofuer-eignet-sich-D-vor-allem/posting-23882520/show/ Not my native language and I don't trust Google translate enough to do that.

Next time, instead of pointing to the changelog, I have to write the article for them. Anyway, better than nothing.

Here's my _quick_ translation of the article. There was one passage that was a bit awkward in German (should never have been published like that) so I didn't try to be "loyal" to the original. Please, point out any mistakes I made, but don't start splitting hairs :) Here's the text in English: Not only young programming languages like Go and Rust that are frequently mentioned in the media are constantly evolving. D that aims to challenge C++ has reached another milestone. With the advent of new systems programming languages like Google’s Go and the Mozilla Foundation’s Rust the D Programming Language got less media coverage, although many new features of C++11 and C++14 had already been part and parcel of D. Self-hosting D What’s worth mentioning now is that with the latest version 2.069 [sic!] the D compiler DMD is now written in D. A new feature like this is always an accolade for a programming language and a sign of a certain maturity. In addition to this, the standard library now features a module for memory allocation. Apart from being able to call C and C++ functions directly, Objective-C functions can now be accessed too. There is mention of more than 160 bug fixes on Twitter. The fact the next DConf, the most important D developer conference worldwide, will take place in Berlin adds some local flavor [the article was written in German]. The dates are 4.-6. May 2016. The call for papers has already started. D developers can send in papers until the 26. February. D in four sentences Shortly after the C++98 standard had been published in 1999, the inventor of D, Walter Bright, set out to develop a new object-oriented, imperative programming language that borrowed heavily from C++. In the following years, he and other developers were also inspired by Java and C#, but also by languages like Ruby and Python. In January 2007, Bright presented version 1.0, which an older article on heise Developer[1] refers to. From 2007 till 2010 the developers worked on version 2.x.

that's neat, but you forget the discussion gives some negative picture except for the few D guys from this forum?? that hold against it.

Yes but the original post only quotes the article and reads: "in essence: no killer feature and as interesting as brainfuck -> and they didn't know about the problems with windows after installation" which is nowhere to be found in the article itself (which in turn is quite skinny and does not give readers any deep insights). Also, "tester" is the name you get, if you don't fill in the form with name and email when you post here (isn't it?). Could that be a troll, a word I don't use light-heartedly? I thought people here should get a translation rather than relying on someone's interpretation of an article in a language not everyone on this forum speaks.
