I just noticed that a beta release is available for the new NeHe lessons. You can see the release notes here.
I took a look at the code, and apart from the horrible naming convetion and the fact that they still use C++, it looks pretty good. So I've decided to do a port of them to D, but there is a catch:
* I'll only port the SDL backend
* I'll "fix" the naming convertion to something more to my tastes
* I don't know when I have the time to do this
Probably the best place to start is from the window backend so that I can get something useful done as fast as possible.
