Just ignore it. This was a bug that accidentally slipped in as the way the version is generated has been changed recently. It has already been fixed: https://github.com/dlang/installer/pull/250 For more details, see the PR or the linked issue.

Personally, I think that how the version number is handled needs further tweaking, as the recent changes have screwed up __VERSION__ for master: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17775 - Jonathan M Davis
