What is the precise scanning GC? I only see how to enable it, but don't really see why would I want to enable it.

Why this is not default behavior?

It's the first release with them and the implementation may not be perfect (e.g. mixins and other corner cases).

My guess is that it'd break the IDEs which parse DMD output for error messages.

It's purpose is to avoid not collecting memory due to false pointers. Here are some related bug reports: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3463 https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4358 https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9094 https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13801 https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18900 Precise heap and data segment scanning isn't the complete solution, though, The stack and registers might still contain false pointers.

I can't find any mentioning of Rainer Schützes work on memory reductions of the GC for non-power-of-two sizes. Was it reverted? Thanks for all the work!

It is listed as "Bugzilla 19455: GC wastes too much memory". What's not found in the changelog is an optimization sweeping large allocations that is inspired by your report https://forum.dlang.org/thread/zrouxhbkssrncyinhvdz forum.dlang.org: https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/2430

Made a comment about size types, regarding why 24 bytes wasn't included in the size set, rainers ? https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/2384#issuecomment-464488155

-transition=intpromote leads to compile error instead of continue to work as it stated in the docs.
