Nice to see 2.060 out, good job everyone involved.

A few quick questions, if I may:

There is an Ubuntu deb, but it isn't clear which version of Ubuntu the
deb is for. Unless everything in the deb is self-contained and
statically linked, this could be a problem.

There is no Debian or Mint deb, is this just lack of resources or
decision not to support anything other than Ubuntu?

There is a Fedora RPM, but it isn't clear which version of Fedora the
RPM is for. Unless everything in the RPM is self-contained and
statically linked, this could be a problem.

Currently I am downloading and installing the zip file but it would be
nice to switch to using debs on my Debian Unstable.

NB The MacOSX DMG link on http://dlang.org/download.html for 1.060 is a
404.

It should work with Oneiric and up at least. Don't know about Debian.

The .deb will work on Debian, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint. I can confirm the latter two at least, and I know others use it on Debian.
 There is a Fedora RPM, but it isn't clear which version of Fedora the

I don't see any reason you can't use the .deb.

Alex, you seem to be quite versed with some OSs that are not represented on the download page. Could you please author a pull request to add them (along with their logo)? Thanks much, Andrei

I have given up on Ubuntu, my machines now are usually Debian Unstable but can boot into Fedora 17. I just loaded up the deb on Debian Unstable and it does seem to work fine. Given that the executables are set up for dynamic linking this is rather surprising. Excellent, but surprising. Installing the 64-bit DMD deb does though pull in a world of GCC 32-bit stuff :-(

Yeah, that's because DMD has -m32 to cross-compile for 32-bit. It's a bit silly that it's not optional. -- Alex Rønne Petersen alex lycus.org http://lycus.org

Not a big deal though, just a bit of a surprise. Kudos to Jordi Sayol the "Ubuntu" deb works fine on Debian Unstable. Mayhap add this to the download webpage?
