Digital Mars D

Digital Mars D is a programming language developed by Walter Bright of Digital Mars as an improvement to C++. D is an imperative, object-oriented (OOP), metaprogramming language.

D takes advantage of certain characteristics of C++ but is technically not a variant of C++. Aspects of Java, C# and Eiffel have also been incorporated. Programmers can enter machine-specific assembler code along with the D code to enhance interfacing with diverse operating system and device drivers.

Significant features of D include:

The first official version of Digital Mars D was released in January 2007. A second, experimental version was released in June 2007.

There are other D programming languages,  including Microsoft D, an end-user programming language in development as part of the company's service-oriented architecture (SOA) initiative.
