digitalmars.D.announce - News Roundup on the D Blog

This news round-up serves as the "public-facing" announcement of 
the latest D release, a hint at the upcoming LDC beta, and word 
on GDC progress. I've also included the formal announcement of 
the SAOC 2020 results, and a reminder about a couple of Github 
repositories where anyone looking to sharpen their D skills can 
go for some ideas, wether they're looking for a major project or 
some simple tasks to fill an afternoon.
