I am proud to publish a report of my GSoC work as two extensive

It's really nice to see that GSoC has been such a huge success so

Over the next weeks and months I will continue my work on
mir.random, which is supposed to supersede std.random, so in

the biggest problem with std.random, i.e., it uses value types
and copying? I remember a lot of discussion about this and it
seemed at the time that the only really solid solution was to
make all random generators classes, though I think DIP1000 *may*
