Congrats, but why are there still 6 Regressions / 34 Blockers open in Bugzilla? At least with the one that opens from the main D page /resouces/bugtracker. Is this a different tracker that's not up to date?

Regarding regressions: I think the policy is to not release with new regressions. That is, regressions from before 2.068 don't block the release. Regarding blockers: As far as I know, "blocker" doesn't mean a thing for releases. I think many of those have been labeled "blocker" because they block someone in their work, rather than blocking a release.

Aha. But if I look into the Regressions that are still open, they have been worked on and they have pull requests so to me they look pretty much closed. But the Bug Tracker list them as new - not even assigned to someone.

 "blocker" because they block someone in their work, rather than

Yeah, I know. But even most of them are far from a state "new", I would think. Maybe the state should reflect this progress better, because these 3000 open and unassigned bug give a much worse impression of the state of D than the language really is in. People get easy turned away from D by that look, which I think would be easy to avoid.

Yeah, we don't really make use of the ASSIGNED status. Maybe we should. I assigned the issues for which I have open pull requests to myself. But that's only 3 issues. I don't know how to get the heavy hitters to be more attentive in that regard. I guess whenever one makes a pull request to fix an issue, the issue can be considered to be assigned to them. You could go through everything and assign issues to PR makers, but that'd be quite some legwork.

"3. Attributes for auto return function are now inferred." This is a bad idea. What if I want/need to specify the return type but still want attribute inference? What if I don't want attribute inference, but I want the return type to be inferred?

No, just installed brew last night.

Ah, that mentions that a bunch of paths aren't writeable and suggests I chown them. Warning: /usr/local/bin isn't writable. Warning: /usr/local/etc isn't writable. Warning: /usr/local/sbin isn't writable. Warning: The /usr/local directory is not writable. Might be something to do with corp setup. brew install went fine but said it was changing all those dirs to be group-writeable and group 'admin'. But they don't appear to be so now: $ ls -ld /usr/local/bin drwxr-xr-x 77 root wheel 2618 Aug 10 18:06 /usr/local/bin Running the chmod and chgrp commands from the brew install over again does allow the 'brew install dmd' command to complete without error. --bb

Not true. AFAIK /usr/local is the only bit of /usr that *is* available for third-parties.

Ah, mixed it up with this tidbit: The /usr/local folder remains accessible, however; it's a long-running convention in Unix and variants as a place to stash material and software that individual users rely on. El Capitan will also remove files from those directories that don't belong to Apple. So it isn't safe over an upgrade, but is accessible. --Ben

El Capitan doesn't delete non-Apple-controlled stuff from /usr/local/, but it will from e.g. /usr/bin/

Something that's not obvious about phobos `hexString` CT template, it's not reflected in the DDOC, but it works with the `import` expression, and i think it was the primary goal, for example if you have an hex dump that's likely to represent some ASCII chars, in a file named file.txt: --- import std.conv; writeln( hexString!(import("file.txt"))); --- Coedit users can use this easily because the folder of a runnable module is always added to the string import path (-J). For example they just have to put the dump files into the folder where stand the script...et voilà "compile file & run" works directly without error about the import() folder.
