digitalmars.D - DMD 2.1.0?

reply "bearophile" <bearophileHUGS lycos.com> writes:
Given:
- The many differences between dmd 2.059 and 2.060alpha, and the 
amount of time passed since the release of 2.059;
- The fact that there are some 2.060alpha regressions to be fixed 
still, so dmd 2.060 is not coming out tomorrow;
- And the recent idea of introducing stable dmd releases that 
include many patches despite not being really a v.2.061 (see the 
"Stable D Releases!" in D.announce);
- That I think a "languageNumber.majorVersion.revision" numbering 
scheme is better, more widespread and more useful (where 
"languageNumber" is 1, 2 and maybe 3, a change in "majorVersion" 
means something is changed in the language and this calls for 
changes in user code and this is the point where the stable D 
releases must include all the patches of the main trunk, and 
"revision" means just bug fixes and tiny backwards-compatible 
enhancements that are not necessarily included in the stable D 
release) (See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_versioning ).

Then I suggest to call the next release dmd  2.1.0 :-)

And maybe in such 2.1.0 it's better to deprecate the features 
marked as "future" here:
http://dlang.org/deprecate.html

In a Bugzilla entry (6277) I have also suggested another idea 
(maybe fit for dmd 2.1.0 still) to improve the evolvability of 
the D language: beside using -d (deprecated features) another way 
to face those problems is to use an idea from Python, a switch 
like "-future" that activates language features that will be 
introduced in future (this also means the "-property" flag gets 
moved into "-future" and removed, so the total amount of dmd 
flags doesn't change).

Bye,

This may pose an issue to the dlang-stable project ... Particularly I think we all are still trying to figure out just how it will work. At this point the dlang-stable repos are just forks of D from June 16th, it's essentially just a snapshot of 2.060. Our plan was to reset the repos to 2.060 to clean out any mistakes made during the learning process and then use 2.060 as a the base point. After that a 2.1.61 makes a LOT of sense, at least for dlang-stable. :-) However, if you want to make the argument that the June 16 snapshot of 2.060 is a good enough starting point, i'm all ears. :-) -- Adam Wilson IRC: LightBender Project Coordinator The Horizon Project http://www.thehorizonproject.org/

It's not majorVersion that is missing from the current scheme, it's revision. There already was a dmd 2.1.0: http://dlang.org/changelog.html#new2_001

60 major versions is a lot, but maybe you are right. Then what's a good numbering for the next dmd? Maybe DMD 2.60.0 ? Bye, bearophile

I fixed that in a pull last night. Looks like Andrei has deployed it. It should be gone now. If not, let Andrei or myself know (and what browser you are using).

The change log is on the website. http://dlang.org/changelog.html and the github repos all use there own dd file. eg https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/blob/master/changelog.dd

Ok, I suppose dmd's log is over on d-programming-language.org https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/d-programming-language.org/blob/master/changelog.dd

Hmm I'm looking for the 2.060 changelog, I'd like to know what these big changes are that OP is talking about.

They haven't happened yet, the idea is to push out 2.060 before they come. -- Adam Wilson IRC: LightBender Project Coordinator The Horizon Project http://www.thehorizonproject.org/
