Congratulations are in order for Iain Buclaw. His efforts have 
been rewarded in a big way. Last Friday, he got the greenlight to 
move forward with submitting his changes into GCC:

https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2018-10/msg01676.html

That's now a reality.

https://gcc.gnu.org/git/?p=gcc.git;a=commit;h=03385ed3d679cd8125f282697a1c7cf46f8361cc

Hopefully around the time of DConf next year we'll see GDC 
included with the release of GCC 9. How cool is that?

Wow! Congratulations to Iain Buclaw. We've been following his work since a talk in DConf a few years ago and this is such an exciting development. Congratulations to the entire Dlang community as well! ~ SD

2.076. Note that this is not the latest GDC version; GDC is up to date and follows DMD master. A newer frontend should get into GDC 10.

Yep. Worth noting that the code is based on the original C++ implementation (2.068), and had spent the better part of a year or so backporting bug fixes and features from the converted D sources. If there's any regressions in 2.076 or earlier that got fixed in later versions, then they could be backported as well. Iain.

Great work, Iain! Thanks for having such a long breath. I'm aware that this is not the end of your endeavour, so I wish you good luck on the way to your remaining milestones. It must feel great to have the road opened up to those! Bastiaan.

Congratulations! I hope this will bring dlang much more of the deserved visibility and money/momentum.

I think that's an understatement. It's a massive achievement by Iain, and he did it pretty much all on his own. Very few developers have both the technical chops and dogged persistence to pull something like this off. It's a career-making accomplishment, and all Iain ever needs to put on his resume! We're all enormously lucky to have Iain on our team! Please join me in hefting a pint to Iain!

It was bourbon for me last night, but yes indeed! P.S. I do hope Iain sees our HL's congratulating him on IRC.
