If you've been following the Announce forum, then you already know about most of the news in my latest D News video covering April and May: the releases of D 2.100.0, LDC 1.30.0-beta1, and GDC 12.1 (the first GDC release with the D version of the D backend), the publication of the DConf '22 schedule, and the upcoming deadline for DConf '22 early-bird registration.
One bit of news I hadn't announced anywhere before this video: we have a sponsor for the DConf '22 BeerConf! A big thanks to Funkwerk for supporting us. Thanks to them, we'll be able to hire out space for BeerConf every evening August 1-4. And each night, everything you order (drinks and food) will be covered until we reach the minimum spending amount.
Symmetry is making the arrangements with a local pub that we've picked out. I'll provide the details as soon as I hear from them that everything is settled.
Part of the funding for BeerConf is provided by the D Language Foundation. If you'd like to buy a round or two, or a few, for your fellow D programming language enthusiasts, please leave a donation at our Open Collective page:
Or via one of the other options on our donation page:

I'll have the text version of it up on the blog in a day or so.
