* What is it?
DCD is a client and server program that work together to provide autocomplete suggestions and function call tips to almost any text editor that supports scripting or plugins.

* Who is it for?
People who would like autocomplete, but don't want to give up their favorite editor for an IDE.

* Where is it?
GitHub! https://github.com/Hackerpilot/DCD

* What does it look like?
There's a short demo video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo2POmn2_9U

* What editors does it work with?
Textadept, Kate/KDevelop, Vim, and Emacs. The Textadept integration script is the reference implementation.

* This sounds a lot like GoCode
It does, doesn't it?

* Does it work?
Yes and no. DCD is fairly new, and not all of the features you'd expect from a D autocompletion engine are present. I do feel that it's enough of an improvement over not having autocomplete to make this alpha announcement.

* Should I file bug reports in this announcement thread?
No. Add them here: https://github.com/Hackerpilot/DCD/issues?state=open
