I finally watched it (I failed to survive the long over-nighters until 10am
to watch this one live >_<).
I want to offer congratulation and thanks to Iain for this work!
For me, this is perhaps the single most important work in the D ecosystem
yet this year, and for me, I think the debugging environment remains the
single most significant hurdle to confident and practical adoption of D in
It brings me to the interesting realisation (which I already knew, I have
just been denying), that for D to proceed on Windows, MSVC will have to
go... and I don't know how to go about this :/
MS's debugger will presumably never support these features, but the de
facto Windows toolchain emit's PDB for use with the MS tools. I wonder if
there are competing debuggers that support PDB which could support
unofficial extensions to PDB which may express D better?
