Here's a new release candidate featuring a few fixes by klickverbot, fawzi, 
wilsonk and Deewiant as well as DMDFE 1.057. It's still using LLVM 2.6 and 
Tango 0.99.9 and is available for Linux x86-64 at:

The plan is to release the new version of LDC next week. If someone feels 
like building and bundling it for 32 bit systems, I'd gladly host it and 
include it in the announcement.

I suggest to post such things in the announce newsgroup.

Cool! Is there any chance of an update to the dstress page? It'd be great to see how both LDC and DMD are doing, even if only a few times per year.

I tried to get some dstress runs done when the first release canidate came out, the test runner keeps crashing on me for some reason though (that's also the reason why automated dstress runs on LDC commits stopped). I'll try with a clean install of everything soon and see how things go. Unless someone beats me to it of course :)

I don't see the funny side, am I missing the joke? I might add that the test runner is written in C and it's barely been modified since it was first written 5 years ago... Volunteers to port it to D?

The idea of a tool designed to help improve reliability that, itself, keeps crashing, just seems amusingly ironic.

At some point, probably... it doesn't look like it's going to happen any time soon though. I was working on it, and managed to get druntime compiling (and almost completely running), I just don't have time to work on it any more though. It seems the other LDC developers have also been busy in this respect, so unless someone picks up from where I left off it could be a while.
