when will D2 be stable?
I found D is a wonderful programming language and start to use it in my
projects. I use D2 now, but which is still unstable although it's version is
D2.029. Can anyone tell me when D2 will be stable? Although D's using rate
suffers sharp fall(shown in tiobe), I'll still believe that D will be better
in future. But why does D fall down so much?

Thanks

The fall of D in Tiobe has to do with an issue in Yahoo's search engine. 
I have talked to a friend of mine who is a research scientist at Yahoo 
and he is looking into fixing the issue and also the fact that the top 3 
results for "D programming" search are irrelevant.

I don't trust TOIBE; no one should, it's just not reliable.

Tiobe is like the astrology weekly news snippets: you know it's bullshit but 
you can't resist wanting to believe - until it brings bad news of course ;)

Hmmm... maybe your friend has done something already. Yahoo search for "D
Programming" (with quotes) is giving me 791K hits and the first three are
www.digitalmars.com/d, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D_programming_language, and
en.wikibooks.org/wiki/D_Programming.

Looking good.

Mrs O: What are you?

Mrs Trepidatious: I'm Nesbitt.

Mrs O: There's not a zodiacal sign called Nesbitt...

Mrs Trepidatious: All right, Derry and Toms.

Mrs O: (surveying paper) Aquarius, Scorpio, Virgo, Derry and Toms. April
29th to March 22nd. Even dates only.

Mrs Trepidatious: Well what does it presage?

Mrs O: You have green, scaly skin, and a soft yellow underbelly with a
series of fin-like ridges running down your spine and tail. Although
lizardlike in shape, you can grow anything up to thirty feet in length
with huge teeth that can bite off great rocks and trees. You inhabit
arid sub-tropical zones and wear spectacles.

Mrs Trepidatious: It's very good about the spectacles.

We should give D1 time to be finished before worrying about that.
