Hi guys.
Is there a going development on x64 compiler for windows? Or D 
won't support x64 at all?

Thanks

As far as I know, optlink (linker used by dmd on windows) cannot output 64bit binaries, so until optlink gets upgraded (or until dmd switches to another linker, which I think all of us windows devs would really like to see) there will be no support for 64bit D applications on windows..

No. object file format, librarian, linker, etc. are from the stone age and don't support x64. Will take time.

Is there any roadmap/timeline when we should wait for x64? Is the work started about it at all? Thanks

No. I totally forgot that you can use gdc though.

Given that there is x64 MinGW version of gdc that shouldn't be a problem? (GDC is usually around one release behind though) -- Dmitry Olshansky

You can compile and run LDC2 on Windows x64. The major problem is missing support for SEH64 exception handling in the used LLVM compiler framework. https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc Kai

It is a known blocker issue. Nothing has been announced, but it will definitely happen. It is surely far less work than adding 64-bit code generation to an ancient 32-bit back-end (which took Walter less than one year).

Does it support at least DWARF exceptions?
