Thank you so much Rainer for adding the 64 bit dmd compiler to the windows installation package. Also building DMD with LDC is such a huge improvement. Thank you Sebastian. This is really great news! Kind regards André

Small remark: To get dub working you need to copy it from bin folder to bin64 folder manually. Just adding folders `bin64` and `bin` to PATH does not work because Dub will you `dmd` from current folder. I just tested the performance improvement and it feels twice as fast as before! Kind regards André

I guess by "working" you mean that dub uses the 64-bit version of dmd. We could add a 64-bit version of dub to the bin64 folder, too, but I'm not sure the bin64 version of the compiler has to be the default. It uses almost twice as much memory and hence is a bit slower: dmd.exe -m64 -c -unittest std\regex\internal\tests.d 32-bit dmd: 853 MB, 3.280 sec 64-bit dmd: 1445 MB, 3.740 sec
 
 I just tested the performance improvement and it feels twice as fast as
 before!
dmd 2.090.0: 879 MB, 10.230 sec (released without optimizations) dmd 2.090.1: 873 MB, 5.300 sec

Yes, adding a64 bit version of dub to bin64 would solve the issue. I also agree with you, there is no need to make the 64 version the default. It should just be possible, by extracting the DMD zip archive and setting environment variable PATH to bin64 to have a working dmd & dub integration. Another solution would also be to have 2 dmd windows zip archives like you have it for FreeBSD: dmd.2.090.0.freebsd-32.zip dmd.2.090.0.freebsd-64.zip But this requires more effort I assume, maybe this is a solution for the long ran and the low hanging fruit for the moment is to add a 64 dub executable to the dmd zip archive. Kind regards André

The 64-bit binaries only add a couple of MB to the installer exe/7z, so it's probably not required to split them up.
 and the low hanging fruit for the moment is to add a 64 dub executable
 to the dmd zip archive.

FreeBSD never properly supported multiarch build systems, hence this exceptional split.

I'm happy to see those Windows install improvements. In the changelog, it mentions isClose, but I didn't see that listed in the Phobos enhancement section where it links to Bugzilla. Maybe there should be a way to link to the PR [1] in cases like that? The author addresses two bugzilla issues, but does not link to them in the PR. berni44: I'm a little confused by the note for isClose where it says that isClose(a, b, 1e-2, 1e-2) is very similar to approxEqual(a, b). The default for the second optional parameter for approxEqual is 1e-5, not 1e-2. Also, there is a typo in the isClose documentation: "This is mainly usefull for comparing values to zero." Two l's in usefull. It looks like this typo is also in the approxEqual documentation. While you're at it, you might make clear that it checks the relative difference first (unless maxRelDiff=0) and then the absolute difference (unless maxAbsDiff=0). That made me realize...for isClose(a, b, 0, 0), it looks like it returns true if a == b, but false otherwise (ignoring infinity). Is that intended? I would think that it should instead have an assert say that the checks are skipped, but that's just me. [1] https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/7241

Similar problem like missing dub in bin64 folder is for rdmd. You either need to copy it from bin to bin64 folder or have both folders in environment path variable in correct order. I was facing this issue while building DFMT using dub. (dub.json calls rdmd) (https://github.com/dlang-community/dfmt/issues/472). Is it planned to support it in future and therefore can be also copied to bin64 folder? I also heard several times it is deprecated in favor of dmd -run. Kind regards André

dmd -i -run It gets close but as far as I know rdmd is not deprecated.

The disadvantage of `dmd -i -run` is, it is compiler dependent while `rdmd` is included in dmd and ldc (gdc I do not know). Maybe we should include a 64 bit rdmd in the bin64 folder. Kind regards André
