Technically DWT [1] is a port of SWT to D, not bindings. No Java code is involved.

The beauty of the D language is that there really isn't any "official" packages, other than the language and runtime library.

The key advantages of DWT are;

1. Extensive API and examples from SWT that can be searched with your Browser
2. Statically linked (don't need an external DLL)
3. Easy to learn and use

Here are the various GUIs for the D language:

The choice of a GUI really depends on what your requirements are and how you intend to use it.

Not sure what you mean with "official". The forum or the library?

The forum is the official DWT forum. At one point it was announced that DWT would be the official GUI library for D. In practice nothing change. It's not considered the official GUI library anymore.
