digitalmars.D.learn - Are there plans to make mono D work with current version?

Looking forward to get back to programming in D, I went to set up 
to my favorite environment: Mono D. After lots of download, Mono, 
Gtk#, MSBuild tools, VS 13 commnunity... I get an error saying it 
won't load my D language binding because my current Mono version 
is higher than D language binding's supports.

Are there any plans to make it work in the current version or any 
workaround or should I really downgrade everything?

I'm asking this here because it's likely to the author of the 
mono D read that forum (thank you very much for the extension, by 
the way)

Most likely, you are dealing with this issue: https://github.com/aBothe/Mono-D/issues/648 MonoDevelop 5.x is the latest version supported. They haven't gotten around to making it compatible with anything newer due to various reasons, mainly it being that MonoDevelop has completed changed the plugin API again. If you really need Mono-D, you are stuck with MonoDevelop 5.x for now.

Too bad. What are the D IDE options currently? I might just downgrade to MonoDevelop 5.x

I'd recommend VSCode with Code-D works very well for me. https://github.com/Pure-D/code-d -- Adam Wilson IRC: LightBender import quiet.dlang.dev;

And with Microsoft C++ tools (ms-vscode.cpptools) it can debug D too with x64 or -m32mscoff
