It's a point release, no new features. But RC is on the top of my heap https://trello.com/b/XoFjxiqG/active ;).

Great, thanks! Is this version based on DDMD or the old C++ front-end?

This is a bugfix point release of 2.068, the last dmd using the old C++ front end. 2.069 will be the first release of ddmd, ie the D front end.

Thanks, I just fixed it. The aws client failed to upload that file and it was hard to notice in the log output.

Well, it's a little too late, but the compiler outputs the wrong version: $ dmd --version DMD64 D Compiler v2.068 Copyright (c) 1999-2015 by Digital Mars written by Walter Bright

I think we can fix this. Looks like the version string is generated on build, and has no effect on the code at all. -Steve

It does work for me and the build seems fine as well. https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/installer/blob/c6f8648e56ca58e1cad65a441e2d765ca96f1da0/create_dmd_release/build_all.d#L345 What platform are you on?

Well I guess it's a bug in the homebrew script then. Nobody is setting the VERSION file and there is no git repo to query. https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/blob/f8b0ff3ef63e60a1da17ec8d8e68d949b1cebc27/Library/Formula/dmd.rb#L50

Where is the VERSION file documented? Why does it need manual intervention only for patch releases and pre-releases?

I noticed this as well. There are different VERSION files depending on where you download DMD source code from: The releases on GitHub have 2.068 while the releases on dlang.org have 2.068.1 in VERSION. That's easy to miss when you build from source. (Also the dlang.org downloads add to the DMD download statistics, which is why I use those even though they include extra binaries for all OSs.) -- Marco

We should prolly remove the manually updated VERSION file. The other build scripts update the file or pass VERSION=bla to make.

What would DMD identify itself as then, if a version is not specified on make's command line?

It could use the output of `git describe`. That would probably be better anyway, because non-release builds would properly identify themselves as non-release builds with both the most recent tag name AND, if local HEAD isn't tagged, it will also include the git commit hash (and, IIRC, the number of commits since the most recent tag). *Much* better than having two months of master commits all identifying as the exact same version. <shameless plug> gen-package-version[1] operates on exactly that strategy (which I learned about from dub's source).
