Hi all!

Yesterday, the new DMD release 2.067.0 was announced.

I am glad to tell you that the merge-2.067 branch is now at the 
release level, too. Thanks to the help from kinke and smolt the 
compiler is already quite usable. Well, we still face some 
serious issues.

If you like to help please have a look at issue #868 and check 
the remaining test failures in the dmd testsuite!

Regards,
Kai

Wow, that was fast...I always thought that ldc was at least one step behind dmd frontend spec.

Hi Baz! You should not expect a release very soon - there are still serious bugs to fix. But at least the merge is done. Even that took some time in the past. (I try to follow DMD more closely. I started the merge even before the first beta release.) Regards, Kai

Hi Kai !
I wonder why it's a problem to follow dmd's frontend.
90% of pulls is frontend bug fixes. I think there are no so much
changes with interacting with backend ?

This would be true if the AST generated by the frontend was static. However, its exact form is unfortunately quite fluid. Some of the problematic frontend changes in fact fix a quirk that we needed to work around, some of them introduce new bugs that happen not to matter for the way the DMD glue layer uses the AST, and some just change the AST structure (e.g. by moving something out of the glue layer into the frontend or vice versa). — David

Hi again Kai !
I'm wondering if --disable-linker-strip-dead flag works because 
when i enable it link.exe produces many of errors like:

phobos64.lib(bits.obj) : error LNK2005: _D11TypeInfo_Pv6__initZ 
already defined in main.obj
phobos64.lib(demangle.obj) : error LNK2005: 
_D12TypeInfo_xAa6__initZ already defined in main.obj
phobos64.lib(demangle.obj) : error LNK2005: 
_D11TypeInfo_xm6__initZ already defined in main.obj
