Rainer has announced a new version of Visual D, the Visual Studio plugin for D. Version 0.3.33 supports Visual Studio 2012 and adds a com server to improve performance of parsing and semantic analysis. With continual improvement on this plugin and the recent news that Walter is working on COFF and 64-bit Windows support for DMD, things are looking up on the Windows side of D-Land.
I know there are some people who think full-featured Visual Studio support is key to growing D’s mindshare on Windows. Well, now it’s easier than ever to do something to make that happen. Rainer has made the move to github. Now get busy pull requesting.
Big news from Rainer Schuetze. The latest release of Visual D adds support for GDC. There’s a page on the project wiki that explains how to get it set up. This release also fixes one of my pet peeves. You can now edit the properties of multiple build configurations at once. Previously, any common properties had to be entered repeated for each configuration. Thank you, Rainer!
A new version of Mono-D, the D Language Add-in for MonoDevelop, has been announced. This version sports a total overhaul of the code completion engine. There have been several releases of the add-in this month, but I hadn’t covered them all here. If you’ve not checked it out yet, you should. It’s shaping up better and better with each release.
