a new version has been released, mostly a maintenance release for a number of issues:

2012-03-14 Version 0.3.32

* new version of cv2pdb with better handling of unicode characters in path names and better support for local variables in DWARF debug info
* new version of mago with string literal support for associative array keys and easier stepping into main
* some changes to reduce memory leaks due to false pointers
* fixed parser to disambiguate MixinStatement and MixinExpression
* added support for __vector(T) to parser
* goto definition: if executed on an import statement, now searching file through import paths
* fixed lexer to not treat !in_x as an operator followed by an identifier "_x"
* fixed regression: import expansions only listed folders, no modules
* fixed custom command: project would not restore if multiple commands are used
* project properties: added output type DLL for easier switching between DMD and GDC
* project properties: added subsystem option, use "not set" if you have to specify a specific windows version
* fixed underlining syntax errors shows only first error
* fixed option "Show expansions when" not saving state "writing an identifier"

a new version of Visual D has just been released. The biggest improvement is the move of the parser and semantic analysis into another process so that garbage collections no longer interfere with the IDE.

2012-06-19 Version 0.3.33

* debugger project settings now stored in solution options file, not in project file
* regression: clean project failed, now deletes files given by wildcard recursively
* token replace: fixed freeze when trying to replace no tokens
* cv2pdb: new version 0.25 that allows specifying a different pdb file being embedded into the binary and supports VS11
* cv2pdb: exposed command line options in the project options
* intellisense tool tip now shows enumerator value
* moved parser and semantic analysis into another process
* GDC: user specified libraries are now appended after the source files to the command line to avoid linker problems
* improved performance when indenting multiple lines of code
* remove project item: now asks whether file on disk should also be removed
* parser: added support for linkage specification inside alias
* version highlighting now supports the "version(V):" syntax
* tweaked vsi2d to also convert the Windows 8 SDK and VS2011 SDK
* added wizard to create packages from the new item dialog
* improved import statement detection for expansion and goto definition

Have fun,

after a long struggle with the D garbage collector. a new version is finally available that hopefully doesn't behave like a memory hog for large source files. But there are more changes worth noting:

* fix exceptions in NDepend when opening context menu on D project
* delete file from project now uses VS environment dialog (avoiding dialog when moving project items)
* fixed "build phobos browse info" failing for dmd 2.059
* dependency on other projects: only output files with known file types are now passed to the dmd/gdc command line
* linker error messages can now be decompressed and demangled (thanks to Benjamin Thaut for providing the code)
* lexer now allows unicode characters from std.uni.isAlpha in identifiers
* fix: when building phobos browse info the implicitely added JSON path was not saved to options
* fix calling cv2pdb for D1
* goto definition: if ".." is used to reference the source file path, it could be opened twice in the editor
* new item: package and module name now filled with some guess
* optlink now called directly with file monitoring: this allows passing the library path directly (making the DMD_LIB
patch in sc.ini redundant) and detecting library and source dependencies
* parser could not recover from error in module statement, also improved recovery from error in enum declaration
* parse errors in modules imported during semantic analysis could cause dramatic troubles
* fixed parsing problems with function literal attributes and enumerators
* outlining: adding lines before collapsed region could unfold the regions
* fix: underlined syntax error could lag behind by a keystroke
* tweak completion box:
-- from browse info: template arguments and contraint stripped from symbol now
-- avoid delayed opening of completion box when typing non-identifier characters
-- completion box now closed for a lot of navigation and editing commands
-- improved speed for large symbol lists
* status line now cleared after parsing of imports has finished
* fixed installation for VS2012
* now runs on an almost precise garbage collector
* DLL project template now has a linker definition file

* project config: controls now have style WS_TABSTOP to allow keyboard navigation
* goto definition now uses semantic analysis to find declaration
* semantic analysis now enabled by default (removed experimental status)
* semantics: add .ptr property to dynamic array
* now installed as an "extension" to VS 2010 and VS 2012
* fixed missing output files when a VC project has a project dependency on a D library project
* setting "Demangle names in link errors" never saved
* fixed macros not expanded in "other compiler" when figuring out what linker to be called directly
* now expanding response files in sc.ini or additional compiler options when looking for import or linker directives
* added D icon to vdserver.exe
* added console application project template with configurations for DMD and GDC for Win32 and x86
* fixed spurious crashes due to bug in precise garbage collection

Happy coding,

2013-05-10 Version 0.3.36

* added debug settings to new DMD/GDC project template
* regressions caused by switching to installation as VS2010/VS2012 extension:
- executable path contained untranslated \n
- no Visual D colors added
* only force separate link if "Monitor OPTLINK dependencies" is enabled
* /SUBSYSTEM switches lost when building through optlink directly
* added project option "Use of Deprecated Features causes Error" that maps to -de
* tweaked parser to support new language features:
- version(assert)
- user defined attributes @identifier_opt(arguments) or @identifier
- alias id = type
- alias this = id
- deprecated("message")
- added keyword __parameters
* tweaked parser to support undocumented language features:
- ref anywhere in foreach type to support "foreach(const ref x; range)"
- prefix lambda with function/delegate
- added keyword __argTypes
* syntax highlighting and semantic now fully support version identifiers according to http://dlang.org/version.html
* improved parser/semantics:
- fix "forgetting" type of function parameters after first evaluation
- fix a number of crashes during semantics
- improved parser recovery after too many closing braces
* when cloning a configuration in the configuation manager, debug info settings were lost
* compiling a single file now reports success
* avoid asking to save project file when closing VS and the project has already been saved
* fixed crashes due to bug in precise GC with arrays just below page size
* adjusted JSON interpretation for symbol lookup and parameter tooltips to new format in dmd 2.062
* some tweaks to C++ to D converter
* basic LDC support
* added new option pages for DMD/GDC/LDC directories
* linker messages from GDC can now be demangled aswell
* additional command line arguments now placed at the very end to avoid GDC linker troubles
* DParser by Alexander Bothe ( https://github.com/aBothe/D_Parser ) integrated as an alternative semantic engine
* added command "Compile and Run" to execute current text buffer or selection via rdmd
* added command "Open Language Options" for easier access to the settings page
* added option "Colorize coverage from .LST file" to highlight lines from code coverage output

Have fun,
