What I would most like to see in the future would be a more
complete and simplified set of tools for D.
I believe there should be at least one full-featured tool for
each operating system, which includes syntax highlighting,
auto-complete, symbol-information on hover, go to declaration,
and runtime debugging for D. It should also include at least
basic syntax highlighting for C++, and the ability to build and
link that C++ code with the D program. I believe this tool
should be self contained, and installable with a single click.
An end user of the D programming language should never have to
know anything about what dependencies are needed or installed
for a given addon/extension.
I believe such a set of tools is well within reach. Some
existing tools are already very close to what I've described
I believe DlangIDE can become such tool.
Runs on all platforms. Small.

Debugging needs a lot of improvements to became usable.
Project is easy to contribute for D developers since written in D.
