Orange - a serialization library
This if the first release of the Orange serialization library. Here is a 
short description of the library:

Orange is a serialization library for D1 and D2, supporting both Tango 
and Phobos. It can serialize most of the available types in D, including 
third party types and can serialize through base class references. It 
supports fully automatic serialization of all supported types and also 
supports several ways to customize the serialization. Orange has a 
separate front end (the serializer) and back end (the archive) making it 
possible for the user to create new archive types that can be used with 
the existing serializer.

XML D2/Phobos problem solved ?

Nice work!  I'll try it out eventually, but right now I've been too busy with
stuff that doesn't require serialization.  This is another nice little library
that would be useful to a lot of people but has "dependency hell" written all over
it if D users are generally required to go out and install small misc. pieces of
functionality like this themselves.  IMHO eventually serialization belongs in the
std. lib and seeing that Orange is Boost licensed, once some of the XML and
compiler issues are fixed, this may be a good candidate.

Yes, it's fixed. I'm including a modified version of the whole std.xml 
module, not pretty but it works.

Thanks. I'm more than happy to make the necessary changes to include 
Orange in Phobos.

One question.

Why use string mixin?

Cause it isn't necessary for tango or even lexicaly incorrect for some versions of the compiler

Thanks. I didn't know this technique.
Hmm...

Exactly, there a several features in D2 that is lexical illegal in D1. I 
thought that it was the easiest solution, instead of creating a build 
system that excluded the file for D1, then people are free to use their 
own build system instead of a specific one they perhaps don't like.

Funny solution :)

Is the xml code different from dsource's std2.xml ?

The api reference is a bit too tidy to my liking ;)
