There needs to be a somewhat official version of Tango for D2.0 first I would think. --bb

Yes. At the moment there is not even an unofficial version. The branch I once started was never used and is meanwhile out of date. I repeat asking Kris about plans on D2, but it seems there is currently none. so, don't count on such an update in the near time.

I would think that d 2.0 is still too much of a moving target for the Tango crew. It would be very difficult to maintain versions for both 1.0 and 2.0 without (unless I suppose they get extra help). When was the D 2.0 spec supposed to be frozen? Weren't there plans for the end of this year? -JJR

With so many interested in this topic, it should be possible for a few to go together to update that branch. But as it is, there seems to be no pressing need to update to 2.0 - there aren't any exciting news there. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

The enhanced IFTI in 2.0 is exciting news to me. And Walter seems to have settled on a decision of "won't backport". (http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=493) Template constraints look to be quite a nice feature too. __traits looks pretty convenient for some things as well, even if they look completely hackish. I see basically zero inclination from Walter these days to make major changes to the const system, despite herculean efforts by some on the NG to convince him it needs changing. So I think const is gonna stay pretty much the way it is, like it or not. Walter doesn't want to have to do a major overhaul of Phobos again any more than Tango devs would like to do the same for Tango. --bb
