I'm wondering, why I'm listed twice there (as Bernhard Seckinger and as berni44). IMHO berni44 should not have been listed there... Do I have to change something in my git settings to get this right?

Probably differen email addresses. You can set an email address locally for the repository in .git/config. Or just add an alias: https://github.com/dlang/tools/blob/master/.mailmap

git config -l reveals only one address (which is set at global level; there is no local and no systemwide email address). It's the same I use in github. In bugzilla I use a different one, but I guess, that this is not relevant.

It looks like you made a commit via the GitHub UI. By default it uses a default generated (<...> users.noreply.github.com) email address. You can change this in your GitHub user settings. Anyhow, I went ahead and made a PR to "reduce" you to only one person ;-) https://github.com/dlang/tools/pull/388 For future readers, here's how I found out the other email address: $ ./contributors.d -f git "v2.075.0..master" | grep -i berni

The unittest default mode might cause some issues for unittest frameworks like d-unit. They need a main but due to a dub bug, passing DRT affects the Dub executable but not the spawned application. Open bug issue https://github.com/dlang/dub/issues/1280 Kind regards Andre

I haven't tested, but the frameworks should be fine. They override the behavior (i.e. register a different handler for unittests) The switch only affects vanilla D unittest handler behavior. In other words, if you use e.g. unitthreaded or dub's test build, the switch is of no consequence. -Steve

FYI, here is where d-unit overrides the behavior: https://github.com/linkrope/dunit/blob/e78971a27395169158458e3ab1c35b61c67079f4/src/dunit/framework.d#L772-L775 Doing this prevents any unittest from being run before main, so the default behavior will be ignored. -Steve

I've gotten very used to running my app via dub run --compiler=dmd --build=unittest in order to, with short iterations, run tests and the application at the same time. Changing this behaviour via https://dlang.org/changelog/2.090.0.html#unittest-default is, to me, an usually disruptive change. I tried changing to dub run --compiler=dmd --build=unittest -- --DRT-testmode=run-main but it still doesn't run the application after the unittests are run. Have I missed something or is this a known problem with dub? If so, do I have any alternative to brute-forcing the problem with dub run --compiler=dmd --build=unittest dub run --compiler=dmd --build=debug which, for me, doubles my development iteration time.

I've gotten very used to running my app via     dub run --compiler=dmd --build=unittest in order to, with short iterations, run tests and the application at the same time. Changing this behaviour via https://dlang.org/changelog/2.090.0.html#unittest-default is, to me, an usually disruptive change.
It's a long overdue change IMO. The original intention was to have it switched on version 2.080, but I forgot about it. Most of the time, if you are unittesting, you aren't building exactly production code, so there's no reason to run the main function. Most people used to do this: ``` version(unittest) void main() {} else int main(string[] args) { ... // normal application } ``` Which is somewhat embarrassing for the language to have to do this.
 
 I tried changing to
 
      dub run --compiler=dmd --build=unittest -- --DRT-testmode=run-main
 
 but it still doesn't run the application after the unittests are run.
The issue is that dub is built with D! So dub is actually consuming that option without trying to. There's an open bug on it: https://github.com/dlang/dub/issues/1280
 Have I missed something or is this a known problem with dub? If so, do I 
 have any alternative to brute-forcing the problem with
 
      dub run --compiler=dmd --build=unittest
      dub run --compiler=dmd --build=debug
 
 which, for me, doubles my development iteration time.
Option a: don't use dub run. dub build --compiler=dmd --build=unittest && ./application --DRT-testmode=run-main Option b: you can also set a DRT switch inside your code: https://dlang.org/phobos/rt_config.html e.g.: extern(C) __gshared string[] rt_options = [ "testmode=run-main"]; There are far more people who run unittests as a separate step from running their application. If unittests pass, then there's no distinguishable output from a build without unittests. I can totally imagine accidentally shipping code with unittests in it without intending to. But I can totally see your use case during development. It should work with dub run, I hope it gets fixed. -Steve

dub test doesn't run the actual program only unittests are far as I can tell.

Correct, but that is from 2.090 the behaviour of dub run --build=unittest aswell. This seems strange to me. I would like to see a new built-in build target in dub, say dub run --build=unittest-debug , that mimics the behaviour of dub run --build=unittest prior to 2.090.

dub test adds its own main function and unittest handler (and actually the function is based on the old unittest system, so it won't print the tests run or number of failures. It usually only works for libraries which don't have a main function. -Steve

If it's something common enough, I suggest just creating an alias such as `dubtest` which does `dub test --compiler=dmd && dub run --compiler --build=debug`. Should you want to change compiler, you can make it a function that takes an argument. The druntime issue with `--DRT` is something that is on the map, and should be fixed soon, but I can't promise it will be fixed before the release, as it requires a druntime fix. Alternatively, some other bugs need to be fixed for the druntime fix to be truly efficient.

The solution is already available since 2.084. Dub just needs to ignore DRT options. See info about rt_cmdline_enabled here: https://dlang.org/phobos/rt_config.html -Steve

The windows build is still considered "dirty", i.e.it reports version DMD32 D Compiler v2.090.0-rc.1-dirty. Is there something that can be done about that?

Not sure, if that's the reason, but: Merge https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/7331. This PR is allready merged into master (the wrong target was my mistake) and should have been merged into stable. This PR corrects this. (It fixes an issue on machines, where real==double).
