digitalmars.D - Official press releases from the D Language Foundation

After ldc and dub both got their first stable release this year 
and we now have a beautiful tour for beginners, it's time for 
making more noise about D.

In this thread [1] it was suggested to send press releases from 
the D Foundation to (major) IT press. I think that's a great idea 
and we should explore how feasible it is to do this a couple of 
times a year. After the media has still a huge impact on us all - 
here are two quotes:

 From [1]:

 I got my first hint to D via this announcement of
D compiling with D: http://www.heise.de/developer/meldung/Programmiersprache-D-Compiler-ist-jetzt-selbst-in-D-geschrieben-2869589.html From the recent D blog article [2]:
 Rainer Schuetze first discovered D shortly after work on D2 
It must have been an article in the German c’t magazine (maybe this one [3]) that brought my attention to the D language I think we could setup a simple process that requires sign-off by either Walter or Andrei (Present and Vice-President of the D Foundation). Has anyone here already experience/affiliation in collaborating with the IT press? FWIW I talked with Mike a bit about this [4] and we could have a special category in the D blog ;-) Cheers, Seb [1] https://forum.dlang.org/thread/lwsnqbravjqbnnryvjkx forum.dlang.org [2] http://dlang.org/blog/2016/08/12/project-highlight-visual-d/ [3] http://www.heise.de/developer/artikel/D-die-neue-Programmiersprache-mit-C-Wurzeln-227070.html [4] https://github.com/dlang/D-Blog-Theme/issues/18
