LDC on Fedora is outdated as well... :) I will do something about it soon.

There should be a push to get DMD, GDC, LDC, Dub, Vibe.d and all associated technologies as up to date as possible in Debian and Fedora. But I can only make the call and help by using and reporting errors, I am not in a position to investigate official Debian or Fedora packaging — though I can possibly act as a support test packager if that helps. Having such old D technology in Debian and Fedora has to be seen as an embarrassment, but also an opportunity since the packages are there to be updated. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

On Fedora 20, it is ldc 0.12.0. That's not the latest release but also not too old. The real problem with the Fedora package is that phobos/druntime is built as a shared library which is not (yet) supported. If you could fix this that would be awesome. Regards, Kai

LDC/Debian is currently discussed. GDC is more difficult because it can only be included as pary of GCC block. I don't think DMD will ever be in Debian because of backend license.

I even build my DMD RPM with shared library by default. :D I will change this. I kinda expected DMD to have shared library support before I do RPM SPECs, but that was not the case.
