after having passed the 10 year anniversary of public availability
recently, it is finally time to release version 1.0 of Visual D, the
Visual Studio extension that adds D language support to VS 2008-2019.

You can find the installer at

Highlights from this release:

- semantic engine based on dmd front end now enabled by default and
updated to 2.092. If you are low on memory or run a 32-bit Windows, you
should switch back to the legacy engine.

- debugger extension mago will now evaluate struct or class properties
(methods or fields) __debugOverview, __debugExpanded and __debugTextView
to customize the debugger display. mago can even display forward ranges
as a list, but that is currently rather slow, so it is disabled by
default (see debugger options).

- the bar on the top of the edit window now displays the current edit
scope and allows faster navigation within a source file (needs the dmd
based engine)

- ever wondered how to navigate to the type of a variable declared by
`auto` inference? clicking an identifier in a tool tip from intellisense
will now jump to its definition (only with the dmd based engine)

See for
the complete list of changes.
