I like this (but maybe a short note that manual memory management and
unsafe stuff is still possible).
"The D programming language. Modern convenience. Multi-paradigm power.
Native efficiency." however sounds too buzzwordy IMHO.
Regardless of the actual words used: This style of pseudo sentences only
consisting of an adjective and a noun reminds me of annoying advertising
slogans (there probably is a technical term for this, but I'm no
linguist). And three of them in a row (or 4, if your count "The D
programming language") hurt.
Two or three short sentences (in the style of Peter's suggestion) are
still short enough that everybody reads them (maybe important parts
could be emphasized for everybody who is too lazy to read whole
sentences), contain more information and look more serious than a line
of pseudo-sentences that sound like taken from a TV commercial.
