I managed to let this little anniversary slip by me. My first
post in the old Derelict forum at DSource is dated May 6,
2004, my initial commit to svn was May 7, and my
announcement in the newsgroup was on May 8. My attention to
the project has waxed and waned, but I'm still puttering along.
I expect to continue for the forseeable future.
There have been a number of contributors over the years who
have helped out in porting to Linux and Mac, fixing bugs, and
keeping the bindings up to date. It's been very much a
community project, which has made it more enjoyable to work on.
It helps that it isn't difficult to maintain :)
Maybe before the next decade goes by I'll actually finish a
game in D, which is the reason I started Derelict in the first
For those who don't know, the current iteration of Derelict can
be found at the DerelictOrg group at github. I've still got
work to do on it (ahem, documentation), but it's coming along.
Thanks for that long dedication! Using it since 7 years :)
I probably wouldn't have stucked with D if it weren't for
Derelict, and I know other people who wouldn't have either.
