digitalmars.D.announce - NEW Milestone: 1500 packages at code.dlang.org

Hi all, I am very happy to be the first to announce this here:

1500 D packages available via DUB at code.dlang.org !

Now as the pure volume of solutions gets more and more impressive,
we have to find better ways to enhance quality and stability.

The "Score" indicator is a very good step.
A field, probably at first just manually set by the owner, giving 
latest tested dmd version might give a good way to filter for 
well maintained packages.

My second wish is to start a general effort to adopt several 
packages by D Foundation to ensure they keep updated.

So a big "Thank You", to all the great people building D and its 
ecosystem!

Good news indeed. I remember when dub had very few packages...now things are really getting better.

What was the word on the autotester (or similar) testing popular packages as part of the test suite?

This is been done since more than a year now for the ~50 most popular packages: https://buildkite.com/dlang In my opinion this is one of the main reasons why the last releases were so successful (=almost no regressions).

That's awesome. This is the way to go. Congrats to everyone who helped pull this off. T -- Freedom of speech: the whole world has no right *not* to hear my spouting off!

Agreed! This is a really nice bit of work that's come out of the D ecosystem.
