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?
package manager presence has improved, so I would expect
dlang.org downloads to represent a smaller fraction of total
downloads than it used to.
