Request assistance in identifying non-breaking changes (fixes) for
inclusion in the 2.065.1 point release. I need assistance with this
because I do not have the expertise to determine what goes into the
point release. If nothing is identified, I will abandon the idea of
providing point releases.

A issues ([1] & [2]) have been created for identifying commits that
require cherry picking for inclusion in future beta/release candidates.
Commits not identified will not be picked.

Enjoy,
Andrew

Managing multiple Alpha or Beta builds with a1, a2 .. or b1, b2 etc look good. Adding another point-number to the 2.066 like 2.066.1 is a needless confusion, unless you have already released 2.066 and coming up with an intermediate release before 2.067

Note that the maintenance/point release refers specifically to 2.065.1. 2.065 was released in February and there is nothing that says you cannot continue maintaining it after we've released 2.066.

What does this event mean? Where does xyz come from? The code below also compiles in 2.065.0 on osx, but comment out opDispach() and it fails with the same error message as above. Seems to be a bug that got fixed. void main() { auto e = Vec4(5, 3, 3, 1); // This worked with dmd_2.065.0-0_amd64 // but does not work with dmd_2.066.0~b2-0_amd64 auto x = e.xyz; // Error: no property 'xyz' for type 'Vec!4' } alias Vec4 = Vec!4; struct Vec(int dim) { union { struct { float h; float i; float j; static if (4 <= dim) float w; } } this(float h, float i, float j, float w) {} auto opDispatch(string components)() const { Vec!(1) result = void; return result; } }

This works in 2.065.0 also: void main() { auto e = Vec4(5); // This worked with dmd_2.065.0-0_amd64 // but does not work with dmd_2.066.0~b2-0_amd64 auto x = e.xyz; // Error: no property 'xyz' for type 'Vec!4' } alias Vec4 = Vec!4; struct Vec(int dim) { this(float h) {} auto opDispatch(string components)() { Vec!(1) result = void; return result; } } remove the "string components" parameter form opDispatch to reveal the same error.

Hm, could you elaborate a bit further on this? As per the spec, opDispatch requires a string parameter (http://dlang.org/operatoroverloading.html#Dispatch). Removing it means that the compiler no longer considers the template to match the opDispatch signature, and thus of course .xyz fails. David

My concern is that this shouldn't compile in the first place. What is xyz?, Is it a free function? Is it a member variable or function? In my mind it is neither of the two so why does it compile? Removing the string changes the signature of opDispatch but as shown in my prior example, there are orther ways to cause this error.

It's swizzling. gl3n[1] implements it as well. --Ben [1]https://github.com/Dav1dde/gl3n/blob/master/gl3n/linalg.d#L375

Oh, but that's precisely the point of opDispatch. ;) It offers a mechanism to respond to any members that are not found. See the spec for an example: http://dlang.org/operatoroverloading.html#Dispatch David

Exactly. opDispatch catches calls to missing methods and acts based on method name which it gets as a string at compile time. In this case, the idea is this: auto v1 = Vec!4(4, 5, 6, 7); auto v2 = v1.xyz; // => Vec!3(4, 5, 6); auto v3 = v1.wx; // => Vec!2(7, 4); auto v4 = v1.wxx1; // => Vec!4(7, 4, 4, 1);

Okay, got it. Thanks to both you and David for the clarification. A bug report was filed: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13087
