Hi everyone!

On behalf of the LDC team I am proud to announce the new 
0.17.0-beta1 release!
It is based on the 2.068.2 front-end and LLVM 3.5-3.7.

This is the first beta version of the new release. It contains 
many internal refactorings, including preparation for a Win32 
compiler.
Thanks to the whole team doing this great work. A special thanks 
goes to Rainer for the work on the Win32 compiler.

Be sure to read the change log at the GitHub release page which 
also has the package download links:
https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v0.17.0-beta1

Please test this release to make it another great one!

There are some known bugs:
- FreeBSD requires a fix from master
- OpenSolaris has a compile error in druntime
- Release is not yet checked on Linux/PPC and Linux/PPC64

Due to an upload issue with GitHub there is no GZip-compressed 
archive for OS X.

MD5 checksums for the release packages:

6f7a9d70049bd7b8f0551ee15386ff7f ldc2-0.17.0-beta1-win64-msvc.zip

Regarding the binaries:
The Linux binaries are built on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with gcc 4.8.x 
and LLVM 3.7.0. They work on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (or later) without 
installing additional software.

The OS X binaries are built with LLVM 3.6.2 on OS X 10.10.

The Win64 MSVC version is built with VS2015 using LLVM 3.7 in 
release mode. The distribution now contains a precompiled libcurl 
7.40.0 from http://d.darktech.org/libcurl.html. For any other 
VisualStudio version you need to rebuild the library.
You find the build script here: 
https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc-scripts/blob/master/ldc2-win64/RELEASE.proj

Please be sure to report any bugs at 
https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/issues, and feel free to 
drop by at the digitalmars.D.ldc forums 
(http://forum.dlang.org/group/digitalmars.D.ldc) for any 
questions or comments.

Thanks to everybody involved in making this happen!

Regards,
Kai

Hi Kai,

Is there a release of final 0.17.0 imminent? I have the deb packages
ready but for some stupid reason they don't build if I use
0.17.0~beta1-1 (as would be the right debian versioning scheme).
Basically the import path in compilation of D files is unacceptable
(due to the ~ char) and the build fails. I guess I could do some
research on how to fix this but given the really short free time these
days, I think I might ask first if you intend to release 0.17.0 soon,
doesn't hurt to wait a few more days for the debian package, given that
I've delayed the previous versions so much :)

Thanks and sorry for the delay.

Hi Konstantinos! I discovered a small problem while preparing beta 2. You still have some time to investigate... Regards, Kai

Hi Kai -and people! So, apparently I forgot to send a reply, ldc 0.17.0~beta2-1 has been uploaded to Debian unstable: https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=ldc&suite=sid I opened it to all linux platforms, just to see which fail to build and need special attention, so if anyone likes to run ldc on an exotic platform, take a hint :) Regards Konstantinos

Hi Konstantinos! This is great! Do you know which prerequisites are available on the platforms? powerpc and ppc64 should be fully supported. The build only fails because llvm-3.7 is not available. I will have a look at mips64 because at least it should compile. alpha, hppa and m68k are not supported by LLVM and can be dropped. Regards, Kai

=08 Thanks, this is a nice overview. What does BD-Uninstallable mean? Kai: ARM64 seems to have regressed? Best, David

It is fixed with https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/commit/f91f019e4268eb6f9e60e fb84b9dbc0f828a6f9. But in the beta-2 there is the regression. Regards, Kai
