Visual D 0.3.33 has just been released. The biggest improvement is the 
move of the parser and the semantic analysis into a local COM server 
process, so that the IDE is no longer suffering from stalls caused by 
garbage collections on more than small amounts of memory.

Some other, not so spectacular changes include

   * debugger project settings now stored in solution options file, not 
in project file
   * cv2pdb: new version 0.25 that supports VS2012
   * cv2pdb: exposed command line options in the project options
   * intellisense tool tip now shows enumerator value
   * version highlighting now supports the "version(V):" syntax
   * tweaked vsi2d to also convert the Windows 8 SDK and VS2012 SDK
   * various improvements to parser and semantic analysis
