First beta for the 2.070.0 release.

Still a few things missing from the changelog, there is a new package
std.experimental.ndslice, and native (DWARF based) exception handling on
linux.

Well, this still needs a lot of work that nobody was did. Walter spend almost the whole release cycle on EH, I spend a huge amount of time on nightlies/install scripts and was away half of the cycle. So while I still think 313&314 should be one of our main priorities, it seems I couldn't convince anyone.

Regression? Found when compiling dub-package scriptlike (struct Path). #!/usr/bin/env rdmd struct S { this(string r = ".") { } } void main(string[] args) { S s; } ./foo.d(9): Error: variable foo.main.s default construction is disabled for type S Failed: ["dmd", "-v", "-o-", "./foo.d", "-I."] It works with dmd 2.069.2. I think this has been discussed and is intentional. I would suggest clearly mentioning it in the changelog. // Joakim

Thanks for reporting. It's not acceptable to break code like that without a proper deprecation cycle. https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515

Please test the beta. I immediately found several bugs while testing libraries [¹], one of which in gfm (affecting a couple of dependent packages) [²] and another one in ae-graphics. We've already lost one week w/o fixing those blockers, so again please help and test the beta. In case you don't already use Travis-CI or something similar, you should start doing so. Testing the latest beta in Travis-CI is as simple as adding dmd-2.070.0-b1 to your .travis.yml [³] (and we'll soon make it even easier adding support for dmd-beta and dmd-nightly).

I had Tango in mind. But one might argue that it's not relevant and not well maintained. But there's a couple of reasons why I think it would be good to test it: * It's pretty conservatively written. No new fancy feature, or features that might be considered experimental. This is a good test base for finding breakage for code that has been working for years, the core features * It doesn't get any new development, which means that the only likely reason for the code to not compile is because of a breaking change (accidental or intentional) * Basically every single release of DMD during last couple of years has caused at least one breakage in Tango -- /Jacob Carlborg

Oh it's well worth to mention any update issues, in particular if we're breaking code to introduce problematic designs. https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/druntime/pull/1445#issuecomment-170530377

Copy that. I've done what I usually do when a RC is announced and found nothing except a small problem in unDead which was actually even not a regression. Maybe there's not much feedback because there's not much problem. ;p

:) had to say it didn't I. I now have a "out of memory" error from dmd on one of my projects. I have 16GB of ram and 2.069 doesn't do this. I'll try dustmite.

I'm building with dub and this only happened once, I've tried using --force and I still don't get that error.

I fear there are more regressions that people can test for. Currently we can't "dub test" release builds trough DUB. If you do: dub test mypackage it builds with flags -g -unittest -w -debug. (like a -b debug build + the -unittest flag) But if you do: dub test mypackage -b release it builds with flags -release -inline -O -w BUT NOT -unittest Currently we can only "dub test" debug builds without anything dangerous. Since a number of regressions are in the backend, that could be useful if DUB would let us test release builds in Travis-CI.

From my side, when I test a DMD release I just open 1 by 1 the things in metad (https://github.com/BBasile/metad/tree/master/repos) ,compile them, some of the projects have a unittest "config" and I run it as well. It's clear that there's a risk of compilation success because templates are not instantiated... Latest two rlz i've found regressions like that but this time it's ok. Regressions for 2.070 must be on very edgy things.

Makes sense https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dub/issues/747. The compiler does check assertions in unittest blocks even in release builds, right? It's really trivial to add so you might have a try yourself https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dub/blob/3ab683b023bd58dd101e110cf2f6199911eb7477/source/dub/package_.d#L307. In the meantime it's possible to define a custom build type http://code.dlang.org/package-format?lang=json#build-types.

Yes, just verified. Actually, it doesn't matter where the assertion is placed, as long as -unittest is passed. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Works for me to build Visual D, though it uses it's own windows headers most of the time. There are a few tools that use HWND from core.sys.windows that seem ok. I noticed the installer downloads Visual D 0.3.42, this should be updated to the latest version: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/installer/pull/164
