Difference (last change) (no other diffs, normal page display)
Topics are not necessarily problems with the D language or libraries, just things that have come up on the newgroup and generated a good deal of traffic. In fact it's probably better if discussions about features or requested changes go on the FeatureRequestList or a subpage thereof (See heading below).|

*Unicode Issues. Background on Unicode and links to D newsgroup threads about it.|
*Help D Progress. What can you do to help D move forward?|
*Interface Posts. Somewhat outdated (?) list of newsgroup threads about D interfaces.|
*Template Threads. Issues with templates, many now resolved.
===User Request Tracking=
This is the main place to keep track of the endless stream of feature and enhancement requests that come in every day. If you don't want your idea to get lost, put it on one of the pages below.
*Feature Request List - Summary of feature suggestions mostly from newsgroup threads.
** Detail and discussion pages for specific items: [[list][type=children][page=FeatureRequestList][layout=table][date=yes]]
*Easter Eggs - the undocumented features that have appeared in D releases.|
[[text][title=NOTE:]Please address your detailed proposal using a D Improvement Proposal (DIP). If you would like, you could also take the time to copy one of these proposals into a new DIP.]

*Boolean Is Not Bit
Topics are not necessarily problems with the D language or libraries, just things that have come up on the newgroup and generated a good deal of traffic.
(let's try to sort by hottest topic first, coldest topic last)
- Private Issues. Private means visible but not accessible. Is that good?
- Open Source Licenses. This page has some information about open source licenses.
- Really Free Compiler. Is there any free compiler for the D language?
- Grammar Posts. A collection of topics about the D grammar.
- Kernel with D. Summary of attempts to write an Operating System kernel with D.
- Pending Peeves - things that need to get fixed before 1.0.
These pages are for the discussion of issues with development and specification of standard libraries for D.
These are proposals for major changes to D that require serious consideration. As a result, these proposals should be more detailed than mere feature requests, including clear description of the issues and the problems it will solve, discussion of pros and cons, implementation suggestions, alternatives, and probable impact on D users and library maintainers.
- Multidimensional Arrays for the D programming language
- Keyword arguments in functions
- Concurrency Type System
