I believe we can get away with parallel mark-sweep + snapshot-based concurrency. It has some limitations but in D land with GC not being the single source of memory it should work fine.

I still think that mostly precise Immix style GC would also work, it won’t be 1:1 porting job though. Many things to figure out.

Last I remembered, you were working on a GC prototype for D?

Still there, but my spare time is super limited lately, the other project preempted that for the moment.

Any news on that, or have you basically given it up?

Might try to hack to the finish line in one good night, it was pretty close to complete. Debugging would be fun though ;)

Will likely try to complete it at DConf hackathon, I’d be glad should anyone want to help.
