Facebook is using D in production starting today
Today I committed the first 5112 lines of D code to Facebook's 
repository. The project is in heavy daily use at Facebook. Compared to 
the original version (written in C++) we've measured massive wins in all 
of source code size, build speed, and running speed.

In all likelihood we'll follow up with a blog post describing the process.

Congratulations! This is fantastic, I was wondering when there would be
some official announcement, after your AMA.
I look forward to reading the blog post.

Pretty cool. Look forward to the blog post.
It looks like the call to arms you made at DConf this year to 
focus on quality and professionalism are paying off. In 
particular, I've noticed the speed with which bugs are being 
handled has improved recently. Lots of good stuff.
Congratulations on your work.

It's the first battle signaling the end of Middle Earth, and the rise of the Age 
of D. The old guard will be sailing to the Grey Havens soon.

This is fantastic news! And also the time when having an upvote 
button would be awesome. They can be placed here though:

It's been a long road getting here. But congratulations to the D community  
and Facebook. Looking forward to the blog post. :-)
