This news round-up serves as the "public-facing" announcement of the latest D release, a hint at the upcoming LDC beta, and word on GDC progress. I've also included the formal announcement of the SAOC 2020 results, and a reminder about a couple of Github repositories where anyone looking to sharpen their D skills can go for some ideas, wether they're looking for a major project or some simple tasks to fill an afternoon.

Heise is the biggest publisher of IT magazines (c't, ix)

The view reader comments are all negative about D. Maybe this can be changed...
