Hi,

I'm not sure if anyone is even visiting these forums anymore, but I'll post here anyway.

I want to add D2 examples by copying the D1 examples and modifying them accordingly (and maybe add a few D2-specific examples as well). I was thinking of making subpages within the wiki, which is briefly explained here: http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/SubWiki. Then I would change the tutorial sections to list both D1 and D2 links to the tutorials. For example, this page:

http://www.dsource.org/projects/tutorials/wiki/TutorialFundamentals

Would turn into:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9218759/fundamentals.txt

Paste this in the Sandbox to see how it looks like.

So D1 would link to one subpage, and D2 to another.

Would this be an ok approach?

I try to check in from time to time, but I don't post many messages these days.

I think what you've suggested is a fine idea. Back when I was actively adding tutorial content (several years ago), I had no idea that eventually D2 would arrive and introduce so many breaking changes.

D had always been in flux causing the examples to get stale, but many of the changes before D2 were backward compatible anyway. I didn't know that eventually there would be a D1 dialect and a D2 dialect.

Since I suspect that most of the D1 code being written these days is targeting Tango, I don't know how useful the D1 (and pre-D1) examples are now, but I hate to just throw them away since I know that some people still want to remain with D1. I'm still a little bit on the fence myself. (I'm reading through my copy of Andrei's book, but I haven't done much D2 programming yet.)

I think what you're suggesting is a good compromise with adding D2 examples, but not tossing the D1 examples.

I think a lot of the D1 examples could still work with only a few minor changes. Most examples are pretty small anyhow. And this is a community site, so if I mess up something hopefully someone will notice and do corrections.

I'll start converting some of these examples in the next few days.
