digitalmars.D.announce - Snap packages for LDC 1.2.0

Hello all :-)

Stable snap packages for LDC 1.2.0 have been available since 
before the official 1.2.0 release announcement 1 week ago.  
However, since there's more than just the availability of the 
packages to announce, I thought I'd write up some notes for the 
forums.

The full writeup (including installation instructions) is 
available here:
https://forum.dlang.org/post/tqxfcvdzcqendwyydqaq forum.dlang.org

but in short, the latest news can be summarized as:

   * the packaged LDC version has been updated to 1.2.0, comprising
     DMD/druntime/phobos 2.072.2 and LLVM 4.0

   * packages are now available for both i386 and amd64 
architectures,
     with ongoing work to extend the list

   * specific release tracks are now available, allowing users to
     install and update from either the latest LDC releases or from
     specific minor release series

   * these packages are expected to work with (at least) Ubuntu 
14.04,
     16.04, 16.10, 17.04 and development releases; Debian Testing 
and
     Unstable; and OpenSUSE Leap.

Please report any issues encountered with the packages here:

Enjoy, and please do let me know how you get on with using these 
packages!

Thanks & best wishes,
