Thanks. Yes, it was my favorite project at that time and I was 
really into it.

A little bit of everything you said. D was a very welcome 
experience before C++11 came, but there are more modern 
approaches now, for me it's Rust: rich ocosystem, easy to install 
and update, easy to install packages, almost no bugs (at least I 
haven't experienced any so far in the last ~4 years) great IDE 
support and no GC! That why I'm doing almost everything today in 
Rust. I've even convinced my coworkers that we should use Rust. 
It has so many tutorials and works out of the box. That sums it 
up, I have no reason to use D anymore. :)
