I said in my annual D Blog retrospective that I wanted to do a similar post focused on D at large. Sebastian Wilzbach sent me a tremendously helpful info dump of all sorts of goings on, most of which I knew nothing about. When I sat down to write the post, it occurred to me that since Adam Ruppe had recently revived 'This Week in D', it would be fun to have him write up a 'Last Year in D'. I asked, he accepted, I sent him Seb's data (thanks Seb!) and the result is now live on the blog.

I totally aggree, 2018 was such a fantastic year for D. There are a lot of small and big improvements, it is just a pleasure now to use D.

Thanks to everyone making this possible!!!

"March also introduced experimental @nogc exception throwing (as proposed in DIP1008)"

Too bad it doesn't work at all right now:

No GDC merged in GCC mentions? Should count as a big thing IMHO.

Ah, I forgot that when making the little list! (Most my attention was actually on the dmd changelogs...)

but yeah that should have been there.
