digitalmars.D.learn - Anonymous nested classes

I'm trying out the new anonymous nested classes, and can't figure out why 
this won't compile:

    public interface Iterator {
      public bool moveNext();
      public Object current();
    }

    public class Stack {

      public Iterator interator() {
        return new class Iterator {

          public this() {
            currentIndex_ = items_.length - 1;
            // error here: this for items_ needs to be type Stack not type 
void*
          }

          public bool moveNext() {
            return currentIndex_ >= 0;
          }

          public Object current() {
            return items_[currentIndex_];
            // error here: this for items_ needs to be type Stack not type 
void*
          }

          private int currentIndex_;

        };
      }

      private Object[] items_;

    }

The anonymous class (which inherits from Iterator) should have access to its 
enclosing class's members. Or have I gone bonkers?

are implemented. Might try using something like 'Stack.items_' but I would expect that to be treated as a static referance. Maybe 'this.outer.items_' or something therelike will become available. -- Chris Sauls

Doesn't work, sadly. Since the point was to ease translation of Java code, I thought returning anonymous classes would be possible, as it is in Java. Looks like it's not. Has anyone else sussed this out yet? Perhaps an example in the spec is in order.

Sorry, I don't see how DMD 0.127 really fixes that, it still errs (now complaining, that items_ is not accessible). How to make that code compilable (other than making items_ public). Sorry if this is a dumb question, i'm a D newbie ;) Kind regards, Stefan
