Greate news! I think I can say now that GDB will support the D programming language soon (basically name demangling and pretty-printing some data types, like strings and dynamic arrays; if you're looking for the D extension to DWARF, you'll have to wait a little longer for that).

The D support patch was started by John Demme a long time ago, and finished by Mihail Zenkov, who was in charge of merging the patch to the current development branch of GDB and going through the review process.

In the words of Joel Brobecker:

The patch is approved (good job!).

I hope the patch is committed soon, so we can have it in the next GDB release.

Congratulations and thanks to all the people involved in both the patch itself and the review process.
