Some time ago, Walter stated that will be no more (important) modifications in
the language. I would simply suggest that, if some modifications are required,
this is the right time to do it, including syntax, concepts (if necessarily),
before the R1.0 come out. And before that major D-written projects begin.
If some modifications are a necessity, they sould be made. Building on artefacts
(hey, I did not say there are artefacts in D!) is simply the same problem as in
C++.

Also, just my opinion...

Cool, new features!  But I think that about the best feature is that the annoying "smart" brace-insertion can be turned off now. :)

By the way, it says that I have to restart DIDE when I turned them off -- but I didn't and they worked straight away!

- About the culprit that tries to access C:\ -- I it's digc. I didn't even try to recompile it, and someone said that it even can't be recompiled, but I found a hardcoded string "c:" in digc.exe that was found in h:\dmd\bin\. I changed it to "h:" and now it works.

And there's still something on my DIDE wishlist:

- "Open file", also invoked from the "Recent files" part of File menu,
  should be able to open projects (now it just opens them in the text
  editor) Or maybe this is a feature? :O Maybe include a "Recent
  projects" à la MSVC?

More comments when I am allowed some more time with the thing. Good work!

-Antti, becoming old and lazy and needing an IDE for everything...

Next release :).  Although Ill have to work out a way for the projects to not become part of the recent files list.

Aha!  Great, I'll use Matthew's registry lib and just pull the value from the registry at runtime, thanks for that!

lol, Im also going to add a "This file has been modified outside of the editor, update ? " function so you can use emacs and DIDE ( like I do with MSVC! )

I'm glad you mentioned this. Since it seems like a reasonable (and easy) request, I'll create an http-xml api that you can use to query the repository's database. Something along the lines of:

http://domain.com/xml/request.php?query=downloadPackages&project=dig

And that would return an xml file that looks something like this:

<repository>
	<query
echo="http://domain.com/xml/request.php?query=downloadPackages&project=dig"/>
	<files>
		<file>
			<details project="dig" version="2.0.2"
platform="linux" date="2003/11/29"/>
			<download format="tgz"
url="http://domain.com/downloads/dig/dig_2_0_2.tag.gz"/>
		</file>
		<file>
			<details project="dig" version="2.0.2"
platform="win32" date="2003/11/29"/>
			<download format="zip"
url="http://domain.com/downloads/dig/dig_2_0_2.zip"/>
		</file>
		<file>
			<details project="dig" version="1.9.32"
platform="linux" date="2003/10/02"/>
			<download format="tgz"
url="http://domain.com/downloads/dig/dig_1_9_32.tag.gz"/>
		</file>
		<file>
			<details project="dig" version="2.0.2"
platform="win32" date="2003/10/02"/>
			<download format="tgz"
url="http://domain.com/downloads/dig/dig_1_9_32.zip"/>
		</file>
	</files>
</repository>


.....or something like that.

Anyhow, don't pay too much attention to the actual format. Just let it be said that I plan on supplying xml access to repository information. For now, it will strictly be over http (because I don't feel like learning another protocol right now).

The repository site is coming along. But it's a little bit stalled at the moment. I got into a car accident last week, so I'm spending a lot of time at the chiropractor, talking with insurance companies, talking with lawyers, and shopping for a new car. Plus I have an actual job that occupies a bit of my time, 2 hours of commuting every day, and, oh yeah, a wife and 2 kids.

Plus, I got really frustrated with the GForge code. There are hard-coded paths EVERYWHERE in the source code. Plus, their code is really tied to CVS, and I'm planning on doing source control through subversion. So I ditched the GForge code, and now I'm in the process of stitching together a handful of products from other vendors (like phpBB and phpBT) so that they'll all be one big unified system.

Let it be said: THERE WILL BE A D REPOSITORY SITE.

And it will be done as soon as humanly possible, given the rest of my situation. Thanks to everyone for being patient.

Just chill, and look after yourself. It'll happen when it happens, and we'll still be wanting to use it.
