I am pleased to announce the release of a chess engine written in D:

I am not aware of any other chess engine written with the D language.

The source can be compiled with dmd, ldc or gdc, but the best performance are obtained with the latter (almost twice faster).

This is my first program using the D language (I am a former C programmer), and I enjoyed it a lot.

That is awesome!

Two questions:
1) If it is using UCI protocol I guess there are other engines that you can compare amoeba with when it comes to performance and other aspects, did you ?

2) It would be awesome if you could write down how it was to use D for that project as someone freshly coming from C. What were the reasons you chose D, what did you like, what did u hate ? That would help you being read on reddit by a hundred blood thursty devs (street cred and all) and us for knowing what we can improve and also get the PR :)
