There have been 1677 dmd downloads per day (net after discounting Travis CI) on average over the past 28 days (i.e. four weeks ending Sunday, November 15).

Hello Andrei,

what do you think how good the download numbers are representing the popularity of D? Because I myself have downloaded the new compiler several times. One for work, one for home and one for the virtual machine I guess.

As long as we didn't change something in D that affects how often one person downloads the compiler, these are independent variables and do not affect the trend. One or three years ago (or if D were as it was one or three years ago), would you not have downloaded the compiler the same number of times?
