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B: That page is really out-of-date; support in the latest 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?

B: No.

The last substantive update to 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it that it is indeed very out-of-date.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 :

     "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."
