The reason is my book D Web Development, available now for pre-order:

Publishing if I would be interested in writing a book about web development
with D. By that time I used vibe.d only as a test case for LDC :-) But then
I took a closer look at the features of vibe.d and got enthusiastic about
it. I agreed to write the book. Hopefully the book shows much fun it is to
use D for web applications.

exploring all the details, creating examples and writing about it. I
learned a lot in this process, including some more D programming. :-)

Packt seem to have caught some sort of wave at the moment with D related

Though from my experience of correspondence with then they seem to work a
bit backwards.

Hope you enjoyed writing.
