I forgot to post last week, so I slapped that post up without commentary, and now for this week, I write a little about a module that has been sitting in my repo for a long time, but hasn't been very useful. Now, it is minimally useful.

I am awaiting the point release to do more with it, but with the understanding I have of Obj-C now, I was able to get create window in simpledisplay working on Cocoa again.

I spent a huge amount of last week helping a friend do a last-minute move and dealing with a lot of snow... for the second week in a row! As I look outside now, the sun is out and we are back to a whopping 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so I don't wanna sit here typing on the computer for long.

I was approached to write "Last Year in D" for the official blog, and spent much of my free time this week working on that. Upstream, I noticed a little more obj-c code merged, some talk about wrapping C++'s new operator for D as yet another memory management option, and there is a forum post (again) about expanding D to read zip files directly.

Big announcement this week: DConf 2019 announced for May 8 - 11, 2019 in London. And I want to call out the thread on CTFE floating point printing - that is some hard code, so having a self-contained port that happens to be CTFEable is cool to keep in mind! Lastly, read on for statements-in-mixin-template tip!
