Three news recent news items that will be of interest to some of you in D Land…
Walter has let it be known that a long time, and much cursed, bug with OPTLINK has been found and squashed. Specifically, bugzilla #424, which keeps popping up in “why I’m fed up with D” rants. Expect a patched version of OPTLINK in an upcoming DMD release.
Game dev types will be interested to know that Clay Smith has resurfaced and pushed out a new release of ArcLib. You can read all about it on the ArcLib Development Blog, along with a post about Arc’s new Game class. Welcome back, Clay!
Finally, David Simcha (I finally know what the d in ‘dsimcha’ is for), has opened up an interesting new project on DSource. Called simply ‘aa’, the goal of the project is to find a suitable replacement for D’s built-in associative arrays. If you have an aa implementation that you’d like the D world to consider, all you need is a DSource account to push it to the repo. See the project page for details.
