digitalmars.D - Which version?

Those are the most recent D versions available
from ftp.digitalmars.com:

04/06/2005  07:35PM      3,182,171 dmd.120.zip
04/08/2005  03:20AM      3,180,928 dmd.120.2.zip
04/08/2005  03:22AM      3,180,931 dmd.zip

There were 3 bytes added to 'dmd.zip' from 'dmd.120.2.zip',
aparently within 2 minutes. I could compare all files in
the zips, but if someone tells me the difference, I'd be able
to skip that.

Presumably 'dmd.zip' is the one to go for, but before
I install it I'd like to know if there is a vital difference
between 'dmd.zip' and 'dmd.120.2.zip' or not.

No, there isn't, just a slight edit to the changelog. I'll bring them into sync.

That is a good question Bob. I usually just follow Walter's announcement URL news post pointing to: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/changelog.html then click on the top most, "What's new for D <some version number here>" and then, again, click on the bolded "What's New for D <some version number here>" on the top, which points to, http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.120.2.zip Which gives me the answer of dmd.120.2.zip :-) But, again, that's just me: crazy jicman :-) josť

I agree, that is where it all starts from. But when I see a version 0.120.2 short after downloading 0.120, I start double checking. And when I notice for the first time that neiter file sizes nor creation times match between the latest versions I just start asking. Now I've got my answer (thanks Walter!), so I'm happy.
