digitalmars.D - 1.010 == stable ?

Heya, I'm wondering why DMD 1.010 is still mentioned as the 'latest 
stable' version. In my opinion it's not stable at all, featuring the 
NRVO bug fixed in 1.013. Isn't it about time to say that 1.016 is the one?

I agree. 1.015 has been one of the longest-lived releases, ever. No other version has ever been so extensively tested. I think 1.010 was chosen fairly arbitrarily - but you have to start somewhere. 1.015/1.016 is superior to it in all respects. I'd like to see a DStress result for it, though.

You're right, I'll fix it to be 1.016.

The 'beta compiler' link on both 1.0 and 2.0 changelog pages, and on http://www.digitalmars.com/d/dcompiler.html all point the same file. Is that intentional? I haven't checked which version it actually is, but it's this link: http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.zip
