Hi... are there any IDEs or editors out there that support DMD 2.0 yet? I am having a hard time finding a good one. Thanks!

PSPad would be better choice than notepad :) http://www.pspad.com/

At least it has syntax highlighting (although you will need to fine tune it)
project management, and can invoke compiler and go to line with error

To my knowledge there is unfortunately no editor supporting D 2 syntax parsing (and code completion)

You may look at page http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport if you did not already

Yeah, that's an excelent answer for someone looking for help. He'll be using D in no time. :-P

When you say "editor that supports D", do you primarily mean syntax highlighting? In that case, there should be plenty, as there really isn't much difference between D1 and D2.

Also, you didn't say whether you use Windows or Linux. On Linux, I know that both vim, gedit and Kate have syntax highlighting for D. Also, Bill
Baxter made an emacs mode for D some years ago,

Personally, I use vim, and for D2 I only had to add the keywords "ref" and "string" to the syntax file. :)

I can't say anything about IDEs or Windows, as use neither.

You may have to add "immutable", "nothrow", "pure" (and maybe "const"), and be sure "invariant" and "inout" are absent.

"invariant" is still used as class invariants.

ref should be added to the default D syntax file, it's D1/D2.
string is not a keyword (although syntax highlighting it might be a good idea).

Some other new keywords to add:
immutable
shared
__traits

Vim works on windows.

Right.
"__gshared" also has to be added.

Currently my editor doesn't highlight numbers like 1_2 yet.

Have at look at Code::Blocks - it works well on Windows and Linux and has support for D1.0 - so I guess that should cover most of D2.0 keywords...
