It would be nice to have a page to link to when questions come up on Reddit about compatibility with C++.

We have this:
http://dlang.org/cpp_interface.html

From what I understand, it's not complete. For example it says that non-virtual and static member functions cannot be accesses, but that's not the case anymore, AFAIR. And the section about templates also says that there's no support.

That page should also have information about avoiding the garbage collector and the status of GC removal from the standard library.

This information is currently spread over several articles with a different focus each, and not up to date either:

http://dlang.org/garbage.html
http://wiki.dlang.org/Instantiating_Class_Objects_Elsewhere_Than_the_GC_Heap
http://wiki.dlang.org/Memory_Management
http://wiki.dlang.org/Versus_the_garbage_collector

I don't think we should treat both topics on the same page, they're mostly unrelated (though people coming from C++ might be interested in both, of course).
