Thanks, guys. I'm hoping this will help brighten the spotlight on the D language. TIOBE (https://archive.ph/E3Xu7) has D rising fast in popularity. If I can help in some small way to keep this momentum going, then I'm a cappy hamper.

These are exactly the things that were a little bit missing in the D world. Usage of it and advertisement of its usage.

Congrats for your blog.

Indeed. If anyone has more ideas on how to get the word out for D, GtkD, and GtkDcoding, please jump in.

Thanks, Patrick.

Also from me congratulations!

GtkD (GTK) are a great piece of software and your tutorials are fantastic to get into it.

Now the sad part. I would like to use GtkD at work but I can't. The license is really dangerous for companies (you compile lGpl source code into your application), therefore it is a complete no go from the IP department. The license is a huge blocker for GtkD commercial usage.

I would like to run GTK applications in the browser (broadway html5). Due to the license issue I have to use the C api):

I hope the authors of GtkD could change their mind in future.

Kind regards
Andre

As someone who doesn't use these, but has been following the GtkDcoding blog, what exactly is the licensing issue for GtkD versus using GTK directly via the C api? Both GtkD and GTK use the LGPL license. It looks like GtkD has some exceptions in theirs, but they don't seem that onerous.

I am sure there will be a time in the future when people treat software licencing as a thing with facts and legal positions in various jurisdictions rather than a over-emotional panic station.

True companies have convinced themselves that only licences that allow stealing of others' intellectual work are acceptable to business, but then that is the point, they can steal the intellectual work with impugnity.

LGPL is a perfectly reasonable licence for Gtk and GtkD, it is not the bogey-licence that all the knee-jerk emotional reaction claims. LGPL is not GPL.

Almost all software developers I know who express strong opinions on software licencing are doing so based on a complete lack of knowledge of the law and thus the actual reality of software licencing.

A rant of my own:

The push against the GPL is mostly by those who want free software to mean "free labor". GPL software can be dual licensed. Companies can pay for an alternative licensing arrangement if it's that valuable to them. Instead they want "free" software that allows them to avoid payment while imposing restrictions on how others use the software.
