Visual D is a Visual Studio package providing both project management 
and language services for the D programming language. It works with 
Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010 as well as the free Visual Studio Shells.

This release features some useful updates to the mago debugger and 
language and runtime library help through F1:

   * mago debugger: fixed crashes, display of local, TLS and global 
variables, workaround for bad line number debug info
   * cv2pdb: fixed patching of autoexp.dat when the install path 
contained spaces
   * improvements to the syntax parser
   * fixed building phobos browse information
   * F1 searches language and phobos documentation for help on identifier
   * added highlighting of asm block, using new colors "Visual D 
Register/Mnemonic" and "Disabled/Token String" variants

The previous version was not announced here, but contained a few 
improvement worth mentioning:

   * improved smart reindention
   * pasting a full line or more now causes automatic reindentation
   * new option to show demangled symbols in the Error List
