Great stuff. The biggest highlight in this release for C++ users like myself is a huge amount of work relating to extern(C++). I think this is the biggest step forward since it was introduced in 2012. Mixed-language class hierarchies are now supported, and a whole raft of long-standing ABI issues have been worked out, making construction and destruction semantics compatible between languages. No more work-arounds for virtual destructors, or factory-style 'create' functions are required. I made this PR to try and make it better advertised for the release: https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/8366 Also, Rainer has 2 approved patches waiting for merge that complete the set. I was planning to make this change to the release notes before the next release, but I had no idea a release was imminent. Are there announcements ahead of the release branch being tagged? Anyway, if we could see that those patches are integrated into 2.081, that'd be very excellent.

It's still an amazing progress! Thank you!!

Targeting stable and getting it merged before the final 2.081 release (in two weeks) should be all you need. (The beta release announcement [1] would be updated too, but as it probably will be regenerated over the course of the beta period and will be removed once the beta period is over, it's not that important.)
