I will put this here:

Summary (community profile/expectations/disappointments):
- Desktop applications as main area of development;
- Linux as preferred operating system;
- Dub as building tool;
- Visual Studio Code as main editor;
- Missing language features (tuples, named arguments, string 
- Phobos is not intuitive
- @nogc phobos
- json serialization;
- missing phobos important modules;
- poor compiler error messages;
- poor debugging experience;
- @safe is expected to be default;
- not enough third party libraries;
- lack of progress on DIPs;
- ranges are the best;
- spaces, not tabs :)

I don't necessarily endorse this list (e.g. I sincerely hate 
dub), but the D Vision seems to ignore it. And I find this more 
than wrong, personally perceiving it as "we don't care about your 
opinion, we have our own agenda, get lost".
