I managed to let this little anniversary slip by me. My first post in the old Derelict forum at DSource[1] is dated May 6, 2004, my initial commit to svn[2] was May 7, and my announcement in the newsgroup[3] 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 place.

For those who don't know, the current iteration of Derelict can be found at the DerelictOrg group at github[4]. 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.
