Hello every body!

I know it is four months old thread. But now I found the 
solution! :)

As Mike Parker suggested, DUB + Sublime is the solution. DUB 
works so simple, so nice! DUB works like a charm it imports by 
itself all the needed libraries and does lots of other stuff.

The only problem I have with DUB is that all added dependencies 
are "old". For example added dependency "derelict-sdl2" is 
version="~>2.1.4" while on DUB site the last version is 
3.1.0-alpha.3. I tried the --upgrade plus --prerelease option but 
the dependencies remain the same. I tried to write myself the 
version in the dub.sdl but I get errors related to other 
packages. Is there anyway to make DUB automatically use the 
latest version of a dependency?

Thank you all for your kind support!
