"The D Language Front-End Is Trying Now To Get Into GCC 9

Going on for a while now have been D language front-end patches 
for GCC to allow this programming language to be supported by the 
GNU Compiler Collection. It's been a long battle getting to this 
state but it looks like it soon might be mainlined.

Last June was the approval by the GCC Steering Committee to allow 
D support in GCC. While the committee approved of its addition, 
the D language front-end didn't end up getting merged in time for 
the GCC 8 stable release that took place earlier this year." [1]

This looks like a tremendous amount of work! Bravo to the GDC team and I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this patch getting accepted into mainline. -Doc
