OT: New Mini Mac
The announcement of the new mac is all over the place now.  Judging from
the response, it looks like it's quite popular.  I sure like the looks of
it!  I might be bated into testing it out some day. :-)

If you do, you'd be happy to know that D works on it :-)
Both in Linux PPC, as well as in the standard Mac OS X...

I could make binary packages, but I don't have the bandwidth
to host them (probably something like 20 MB each, after gzip)

Re: New Mini Mac
It does look cool , always wanted  one too.  Does it work with any monitor
or do you need a MAC monitor ?

Take a look at http://www.apple.com/macmini/specs.html :

And you can use any USB keyboard and mouse... Or SSH ;-)

Re: New Mini Mac
Yes, it seems to!  It includes the adapter for normal VGA (according to
the specs).

Yep, that would be one of the first things that I'd try -- getting gdc
set up on the mac. It would be great if we could find a site to host those
binary packages! It would sure save some compiling for everyone.

About time Apple made a Mac priced for the home market.
Is the OSX SW development environment available as a free download? or just go
with gcc/gdc?

The Xcode Tools are both available for free, and included with the OS.

While the native compiler *is* GCC, you will need an extra copy for GDC.

assertion syntax
While dumping some thoughts in code on the state of variables I found myself 
typing 'loose' boolean expression:

  mindh[y][x][0] == -maxdh[y][x-1][1];

Now, wouldn't that be a cool syntax for assertions? No function call. It 
totally fits into D's Design By Contract and it's very readable (I often 
find myself wondering what value it was assert(x) aborts on).

Lionello.
