digitalmars.D.ldc - LDC 0.17.0-beta2 has been released!
- Kai Nacke (58/58) Jan 28 Hi everyone!
Hi everyone! On behalf of the LDC team I am proud to announce the new 0.17.0-beta2 release! It is based on the 2.068.2 front-end and LLVM 3.5-3.8. This second beta version of the new release got extensive testing. It is known to work several Linux architectures, Windows 64bit, FreeBSD and Solaris. The compiler now supports NetBSD and has improved support for OpenBSD and DragonFly, too - though runtime support for these three BSD flavours is still missing. We did 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. A PREVIEW version of this compiler is also made available. LDC already supports the new LLVM 3.8 release which is scheduled for end of February. 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-beta2 Please test this beta version to make it another great relase! Due to an upload issue with GitHub there is no GZip-compressed archive for OS X.
