Since the release number is now 1.xxx, does that make the current release a
production version or just another number in the string of beta releases?

Well, I'd say that the 1.xxx is 'production-ready'. It can compile code written for the 1.0 standard if you pass -v1 to the compiler. It can also use a few new useful features added post-1.0. And I'd highly recommend getting the latest version, as the pre-1.013 releases had a really nasty bug... -- Tomasz Stachowiak http://h3.team0xf.com/ h3/h3r3tic on #D freenode

I downloaded D from the Digital Mars site and the version is 1.010. At least
that's what it says when I execute dmd. Is there another download site?

On the D changelog, you can download the newest, 1.014, by going to that update and clicking on the "what's new for _D 1.014_" link.
