Maybe an issue could be raised against the [dlang-bot](https://github.com/dlang/dlang-bot) to request better handling of ambiguous commit messages?

Yes but in the meantime I find strange that you have just approved a PR that will have the same effect [with issue 2]. [with issue 2]: https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/13663

I probably reviewed it on my phone - the github app is very good at hiding lots of information I would have otherwise spotted on desktop. :-)

The PR was too late for the beta, but this is the basic change: https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/3740/files#diff-5cbe9748431681a766784b1bd997444d58d436a26a345b32397daae478f85c5dR907 Please note that this only supports the C runtimes for VS 2015 or later. If you are using the mingw import libraries, you'll have to switch to the corresponding version, too. Without a VS environment, -mscrtlib=vcruntime140 should do, but the tests had to add -Lvcruntime140.lib -Llegacy_stdio_definitions.lib -L/NODEFAULTLIB:msvcrt120.lib on the command line to do that.

You have the source code to druntime, can't you just copy the definitions you want

The compiler has some mangling or attributes deduction bug when compiling or linking tagged self-referencing algebraic. The GitHub job: https://github.com/libmir/mir-ion/runs/5229969072?check_suite_focus=true I report the bug here because issues.dlang.org doesn't like my email: The e-mail address you entered ( my GMAIL ) didn't pass our syntax checking for a legal email address. A legal address must contain exactly one ' ', and at least one '.' after the . Currently, registering using Gmail addresses is not allowed due to spam. It also must not contain any illegal characters.

There are a few goodies hiding in the nightlies that didn't make it into 
the beta.

Stuff like https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18362

And https://dlang.org/changelog/pending.html#actual-dynamiclibrary
(which I did :3)

This is gonna be a good release I think!

Thanks. Regarding: https://dlang.org/changelog/2.099.0.html#allow_casting_from_typetuple_to_typetuple I don't understand why this is allowed: ```d alias Tuple(T...) = T; void foo() { Tuple!(int, int) tup; auto foo = cast(long) tup; pragma(msg, typeof(foo)); // (int, int) } ``` Casting 2 values to one type is weird, and why does it not affect the result type? https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/13501#discussion_r808203393
