Thanks for another great release. By the way, this seemed to fix a bug I found in D 2.040 last night to do with using Unicode strings as AA keys.

This is actually a great release, not just an emergency bug fix. One very minor issue: if you attempt to build phobos on Win32, and you don't have masm386 installed, you need to touch src\druntime\src\rt\minit.obj This is because the date of minit.asm was changed, even though the file itself was unchanged.

Especially thanks for the DLL fix(es). I've just created a very simple test dll in XP/Vista/7 and everything looks fine. Well I am going to enhance that test a bit in that I am using D TLS variables and WINDOWS hooks.. see how it works.., I am not too pessimistic so far :) Bjoern
