Major Developments

The D Language Foundation is now incorporated which is a legal entity to drove D development, taking donations and eventually, paying people to work on D!

This happened last month, but I forgot to announce it! Iain Buclaw was officially appointed as D language maintainer for gdb.

The Windows enhancements discussed a few weeks ago got merged! optlink.exe is the new name for link.exe to avoid name conflicts on 64 bit, and Windows headers from the win32 bindings project are now in druntime! This is going to be huge when it reaches the public release.

There was a conference in Romania where Walter and Andrei spoke. Vladimir Panteleev summarized the conference here. The talks were also discussed on the most popular morning show in Romania!
