 We've had a tremendous infusion of talent and energy in Phobos, and 
 lately work has picked up in unprecedented ways, both in terms of new 
 features and bug fixes. I can't say how happy I am about that!
 At the end of this starting week, on Friday May 28, TDPL will be out on 
 trucks to bookstores.
 Let's make this week a bug fixing week for both dmd and Phobos, and 
 issue a release on Monday. We're going public!

I don't have the time right now to do proper bugzilla entries, but in the interest of time, I'm posting them here. I'm not at a computer, and my dmd install is a recent beta, etc... I noticed that if I compile code that lacks a main function, I get something on the order of 8 error messages. Most of which would be meaningless to someone writing a hello world app. The other thing I noticed is more obscure. unaryFunc does not seem to support void return types when using a string alias. For example "x[a] = foo(a)". Creating a nested function seems to get around the problem.
