There are several D projects on SourceForge - as well as on dsource ?

This one (wxD) is not entirely my own, and has been OK on SourceForge...
I don't think moving it over to DS would help, but maybe you are right.

Now seems to be a bad time to be doing so, though ?
"FATAL: connection limit exceeded for non-superusers"

But I thought that one of the biggest reasons for the lack of interest 
was that Walter already picked another framework (DWT) as the official.
Or that most people are just using DMD and Windows anyway, and then it 
made more sense to pick one of the several existing D/Windows toolkits.
Or perhaps start something new in "pure D", like Harmonia or MinWin ?

I'm using wxWidgets elsewhere, so it made sense to use it for D too...
(the cross-language portability is an added bonus to the cross-platform)

Anyway, wxD 0.05 will soon be released with support for sound and with 
the cross-platform support cleaned up and expanded. Plus some bugfixes.

It'll be announced on digitalmars.D.announce and on http://wxd.sf.net/
(send us an email if you like to join the project or help beta testing)
