Hi,

I have uploaded a new version of Visual D. Apart from changes to the build system, the semantic analysis is now considered stable enough to leave experimental state. I guess too many people just didn't know that it existed at all, because it was buried somewhere in the global options. Although it hasn't improved a lot (no UFCS, no class templates, no operator overloading) it seems quite useful.

Some excerpts from the change log:

  * a number of bug fixes and improvements to the build system, e.g.
    - new linker option to disable using global and standard
      library search paths
    - added preliminary support for upcoming dmd win64 compiler
    - added console application project template with
      configurations for DMD and GDC for Win32 and x86
  * semantic analysis now enabled by default
  * "goto definition" now uses semantic analysis to find declaration
  * added build project to build Visual D from within Visual Studio
    itself without the need to modify makefiles
  * now installed as an "extension" to VS 2010 and VS 2012
  * fixed spurious crashes due to bug in precise garbage collection

The full list of changes can be found here: http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald/wiki/VersionHistory

Visual D is a Visual Studio package providing both project management and language services for the D programming language. It works with Visual Studio 2005-12 as well as the free Visual Studio Shells.

The Visual D installer can be downloaded from its website at http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald

Visual D is completely written in D, the source code is available at github (https://github.com/rainers/visuald) and dsource (http://www.dsource.org/projects/visuald/browser/trunk).

Great work, trying to install it still today!

After switching to this version it started to build my windows app as a console one. It seems to ignore the subsystem choice, I don't see any mention of -L/SUBSYSTEM: in generated build scripts anymore.

Previously I had 0.3.33, I guess, which compiled and linked in one go, not in separate steps, it worked fine.
