I am not sure what the article tells: that Julia is now popular
and people use it? Or that D (and other languages) need to
compete against self-written PR articles?
(Many system-programming languages can achieve the same
performance as what the article describes, when several research
institutes combine forces on just that.)
But yes, Julia's focus on small niche, and its popularity in that
niche makes it attractive for contributors.
