There have been 1677 dmd downloads per day (net after discounting Travis CI) on average over the past 28 days (i.e. four weeks ending Sunday, November 15).

That's a new all-times high ever since we started measuring on January 02, 2013. The previous record, 1630 average daily downloads, was established in the four weeks ending November 17, 2014.

Congratulations to everybody who contributed for making this happen. The hardest part is ahead of us - increased attention brings more scrutiny and demands. Professional execution, stronger participation, and rallying behind our fundamental goals are key to carrying the D language forward.

I'm loving this momentum. Think I've been watching / using D since around
2001 and its never had this much momentum.
Something I've noticed over the last year or two is that other developers
are more accepting of the fact that I'm that guy that likes D, and they
actually ask constructive questions. Ten years ago that never happened,
they would always get that dazed look in their eye and be dismissive.

P.S. I'm also finding the latest compiler _way_ faster compiling vibe's diet templates.

It would make more sense for it to have been D-cember.

Probably has to do with your recent quora response becoming one of the top 30 most upvoted reddit links from the last year, plus one of the most commented on:

That looks more like growth has plateaued which should be extremely concerning.

Not at all. If you look at graph. You will see it is ok, from my point of view. I am not interested in a peek. What is more interesting are minimums. And those seems to rise :).

There might be a November-bias, hard to say from 2 data points, but:

I've been reading some very persuasive articles on popular programming forums about D in the last 2 weeks. In particular, Andrei's reply on Quora was very well written and highly quotable and the thread of Reddit was well received too.

I'd say the current bump in downloads is probably a result of this good press.

Cheers!
