What does the announcement of D 2.003 in the change log mean? Is it
intended to be a preview of what is coming with the next release or
was it added by mistake?

Changlog headers links to concrete versions: ie. http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.2.003.zip But sometimes changlog is given befor release :)

While working on the next version, Walter tends to update the change log as he goes. Occasionally between releases a doc update needs to happen to the website. When that happens, the in-progress change log gets updated along with everything else. I dunno that that's the direct cause here, but if I was a betting man... Later, Brad

Thanks for the explanation. The problem with such premature changelog updates is that they may make people think: "My favorite bug is fixed/feature added. Within a short time the zip will be uploaded and I'll be able to move on". And then nothing happens for a long time. A "Planned for D 2.003" note instead of the release date would be great.
