libgc-d version 1.0 released

Version 1.0 of libgc-d has been released. This is a simple binding library for the libgc library. It has been tested with MCI's interpreter on Linux and OS X and should be ready for production use.

libffi-d version 1.0 released

Version 1.0 of libffi-d has been released. This library is a wrapper around the C library libffi which is useful for dynamic invocation of native functions. Since libffi-d provides a more 'D-like' wrapper around the C library, as opposed to just being a binding, there is a certain amount of logic in libffi-d that is actually quite error-prone. It has been battle-tested in MCI's interpreter on Windows, Linux, and OS X.

Itanium machine acquired

We have just acquired a HP Integrity rx4640 AB370A machine thanks to a donation from Tony Young. We expect to start porting MCI to Itanium as soon as GDC (the GNU D Compiler) is updated to the DMD 2.059 front end.
