I've lost count of how many threads I've seen in the past year
which run something like this:
A: D's C++ interop seems really weak based on this page:
B: That page is really out-of-date; support in the latest
compiler version is much better than that.
A: Is there somewhere else I can find up-to-date information?
The last substantive update to
http://dlang.org/cpp_interface.html was in May 2014. I'm not
qualified to update it myself, but it is clear just from skimming
it that it is indeed very out-of-date. Among other things, this
"...This means that the C++ STL, and C++ Boost, likely will
never be accessible from D."
Contradicts http://wiki.dlang.org/Vision/2015H1 :
"Smooth integration with C and C++ is an essential
competitive advantage of D. We aim to support significant C++
standard library interoperability by mid-2015 and full
interoperability on at least one platform by the end of 2015."
