Is it possible to include the druntime and phobos debug builds with the
windows DMD distro in the future? Maybe phobos_d.lib and druntime_d.lib?
MS provide debug versions of their libs, and it can be very helpful.
It's really annoying to debug problems extending from the standard
libraries without them.

That has been asked several times before, nothing has happened yet. Probably a pull request is needed. It might get easier to create a pull request when we have a completely automatic way of create the releases. -- /Jacob Carlborg

I would also highly appreciate this. The very first thing I do after every release, is building debug versions of phobos and druntime. You can even make dmd automatically link against the debug version if the -debug switch is used by adding the -debuglib parameter to the sc.ini Kind Regards Benjamin Thaut
