state of the language compared to back then:

- there is a good requests library now
- there is hunt framework as high performance HTTP client, but 
there aren't really a lot of resources on how to get started on 
it / userbase is small in general
- regressions have gotten a lot better
- is much more stable, doesn't really crash a lot 
- grpc has dub packages (thanks to symmetry)
- imap has dub packages (thanks to symmetry)
- PDF libraries have been published, you can use C libs too
- awesome-d has been migrated to dlang-community, has been 
improved a lot
- windows support has improved a lot
- I would say VSC plugins work fine out of the box by now

It feels to me like the target audience is still as blurry as 
back then. Several of the issues there still persist.
