Tue, 18 Nov 2014Due to a number of highly busy months (more to come), this release got delayed far more than planned. However, development didn't stall and, finally, a huge list of over 150 changes found its way into the new version. Major changes are all over the place, including some notable changes in the SSL/TLS support and the web interface generator.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014DConf 2014 again featured a lot of very interesting talks. This post presents four particularly interesting posts in the context of vibe.d related development. But on top of that it is of course highly recommended to also take a look at the complete list of talks.
Tue, 03 Jun 2014The "vibe.web.web" web interface generator module has been extended with some important features, making it a full replacement (and more) of the old registerFormInterface() functionality. Other important changes include the use of strong TLS ciphers out of the box, as well as a heavily optimized URLRouter implementation and support for compile-time localization of Diet templates.
Wed, 09 Apr 2014Apart from working on the latest DMD versions, this release includes an important security enhancement in the form of new experimental code for SSL certificate validation. Other major changes include many improvements to the Diet template compiler, various performance improvements, a new FileDescriptorEvent to interface with other I/O libraries, a new web interface generator similar to the REST interface generator, many improvements to the Redis client, and a bunch of other fixes and additions.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014A new tutorial channel for D has been started recently by Simen Endsjø and Rikki Cattermole. It contains beginner friendly step-by-step introductions to everything from system setup to the language ecosystem and the language itself, including an example of using DUB and vibe.d.
Tue, 26 Nov 2013The new release adds support for DMD 2.064 and contains an impressive number of almost 90 additions and bug fixes. Some notable improvements are a better serialization system, reworked WebSocket support, native MongoDB query sorting support and vastly improved stability of the HTTP client and other parts of the system.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013This release fixes compiling on DMD 2.063.2 and DMD HEAD and performs a big API cleanup by removing a lot of deprecated functionality and deprecating some additional symbols. New is also a better task local storage support, a SyslogLogger class and a number of smaller additions and bug fixes.
Wed, 26 Jun 2013This release finally features support for DMD 2.063. It also contains two breaking changes by removing support for the "vibe" script (aka VPM) and switching to an implicit task ownership model for streams (no more explicit acquire/release). It requires DUB 0.9.15 or later to build.
Tue, 18 Jun 2013Vladimir Panteleev aka CyberShadow has held a great talk about web development in D on this year's D conference. A large chunk of it was about vibe.d, but also other interesting projects in the area.
