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.

Same here.

It'd just be good for it to stabilize so we can write tutorials for it without them getting out of date (yeah, the APIs are the same, but Derelict itself keeps changing).
