New/Changed Features:
  * GDC was updated to r510
  * std.stdio should now work properly for D2.

Unchanged/Pending:
  * libgphobos is still not stripped.  An attempt was made to separate 
debug information but resulted in invalid exe's.
  * core.std.stdio still doesn't have a file lock implementation.

Do/will these releases support 64 bits? If not, is the problem technical or just an issue of manpower?

to begin work with 64 bits. I specifically chose TDM as a base because they have a 64 bit release process already.

For me, it's currently a technical problem. My Windows installation is 32 bit. It has been done before. I think part of the problem is DMD/Phobos doesn't support 64 bit on Windows. http://www.digitalmars.com/pnews/read.php?server=news.digitalmars.com&group=digitalmars.D&artnum=125675

P.S. The files on the download page of TDM-GCC are now updated to
4.5.2, you'll have to download the runtime libraries for 4.5.1 from

BTW, will libgphobos have the unittests compiled in? is it possible to exclude them (like -release in DMD)? last time I checked it seems they were in. Only making the modules bigger, and the resulting executables too, I guess (right?). I think users of a library will just trust that said library has passed its tests and won't need them again for building programs.

SJLJ is the only version supported.

I'll work on updating to 4.5.2.  In the meantime, anybody can still 
download the installer for 4.5.1 on the TDM website.  That should 
include all dependencies.

I double checked the build logs, unittests are not compiled in.

The problem with that installer is that it checks for updated versions on the web during install, and then it doesn't let you install 4.5.1, only the newer 4.5.2 one.

Unchecking "Check for updated files on the TDM-GCC server" will allow installing 4.5.1.

I was doing some searching today and came across an old post of mine.

http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/D/gnu/1599.html

I imagine the patch is outdated and unnecessary.  However the phobos to 
dll conversion may be of interest to some.  Don't expect it to work 
without some effort though and keep in mind it was done with D1.

Having gphobos as a DLL solves issues with using D DLLs in projects. 
Garbage collection, exceptions and copying across DLL borders(D programs 
only).
