Latest news
Hi,

I am really sorry but I was following the newsgroups for a long time 
then I stopped 4 months ago and now there a too many news to read.
So could someone tell me :

1) Have you merged the two libs tango and phobos, I mean does it use a 
common base ?

2) What is the status of D compilers, does LLVM D Compiler only 
implements D 1.0 ? GDC don't seem to progress ? Is there any plan for it ?

3) What is the status of D 2.0? Is it still evolving ? Last time I 
followed you were discussing about template syntax.
If today I build a software with this syntax will it work in 1 year ?

thanks

Phobos for D2 now uses a similar base to Tango for D1. When Tango gets ported to 
D2 it'll probably use the same base.

Phobos for D1 doesn't use a common base with Tango because Walter doesn't want 
to break backwards-compatibility (which would happen for some corner cases if 
Phobos switched to the Tango runtime) and Tango prefers their own runtime...

There's a version of LDC for D2, but at the moment I'm pretty sure it doesn't 
actually work.
The developers are focusing on D1 first, and have made good progress there, I 
believe. There was a release for x86, and the next release should support x86_64 
too.

GDC hasn't had much progress lately, AFAIK.

D2 is still subject to change at any time.
