Is there a way to donate to this project? Or maybe buy you a beer or a six-pack?

Thanks for considering a donation, but there is nothing setup to do so.
 Or maybe buy you a beer or a six-pack?
Maybe at DConf, though I'm not yet sure I can make it.

They recently convinced me to make the long flight, I really hope you can join us too! I'd love to sit down with you and study some productivity process stuff together. There's a lot of little stuff that I never find is worth bugging or complaining about when I'm working, but we should go through some edit and debug sessions on different projects and take a careful look at where we're at together. Your work is perhaps the most important work for commercial adoption in my industry, and as I introduce D to my colleagues, VisualD is their first impression of the ecosystem. I've noticed such a difference in response recently where VisualD is starting to feel quite robust and useful in how the entire value proposition of D is received by them.

Great work, thanks! Found some issues in Visual Studio 2019 when debugging I get an occasional crash. Will post a bug once I can isolate the issue.

In case you are having some troubles with the semantic analysis (with LDC or with VC2017 projects), there is a new version available now: https://github.com/dlang/visuald/releases/tag/v0.49.1

And if you are still using VS 2015/2013, 0.49.1 is likely to be causing trouble, so this one's for you: https://github.com/dlang/visuald/releases/tag/v0.49.2

Thanks, do you know of any reason to upgrade to VS 2019? Does VD make any use of it?

Unfortunately, "historical debugging" doesn't (yet) work with Visual D/mago. Other than that new workflow features should work just fine if they are not specific to some other language. The new project dialog makes it a bit difficult to discover D projects as the "Language" selector is not extensible.
