Hi all,

For over 18 years, we have used Freenode as our home for the Dlang community on IRC. Recent events, however, have made it unclear whether we will be able to retain any presence on Freenode at all.

So it has been decided, as of 2021/05/27, our official IRC presence will now be on Libera Chat, with OFTC as a secondary home. The Freenode channel has now been marked as unofficial, and we invite everyone to join us in #d on Libera Chat.

While I have raised this topic here to be discussed, please remember to be considerate and avoid discussing the general subject of Freenode/Libera, as it is off-topic for the D forum.

It's never easy to move home, so I hope you support us well.
