(I may have mentioned this before, but I can’t find a relevant
old post. Apologies if I’m repeating myself.)
I would like to see D move ahead in performance terms. Being
faster than C/C++ is a very tall order since compilers tends to
use common backend machinery and possibly other bits and pieces -
I don’t know.
I would like to see ideas for features that support killer
optimisations and better use of hardware - need ideas for this
though. For example, D’s SIMD and parallelism support are
excellent. Pure could be another.
I see hope for this because it seems to me that D possibly has
more freedom to evolve than say C++ and especially C.
