Sharing the link explicitly isn't counted as traffic by the website(meaning it won't help the post remain popular on HN), so Walter shares the link to the frontpage of hackernews to still get the extra traffic counted.

Considering how I had to look at page 2 to find the post however, I don't think it matters at this point, so here you go

It's not about traffic, but upvotes. If anyone following the direct link upvotes the post, the upvote won't count.

Why is it on HN?
Any updates or improvements in IntelliJ support?

The site looks exactly the same and has a references in outdated language server…

I'm not involved in the project, but it looks active:

Looks like this is the site's repo, where you can report an issue:

The HN user who posted it also recently shared dlang.org there, so it looks like there's no real reason other than "look at this":

There's already an issue in the main repo for documentation. It's needed an overhaul for a while. I'll put some time into it in the next few days

Last time I used IntelliJ plugin it looked interesting but was unusuable because of https://github.com/intellij-dlanguage/intellij-dlanguage/issues/455 . I will have to give it a try again and see if it's fixed.
