digitalmars.D.announce - DVM - D Version Manager 0.4.4

I just released a new version of DVM, 0.4.4. The most important change 
for this release is that DVM now will try to first download the platform 
specific package.

For everyone already using DVM, please update to this version because 
the current release of DMD is most likely that last one to provide the 
cross-platform package DVM has been using so far.

This release fixes a bug (issue 31) on Windows causing the default 
compiler not persist. This release also comes with experimental support 
for FreeBSD (using Bash).

For pre-compiled binaries and changelog (or below) see [1].
DVM is also now available via Dub [2].

For those not familiar with DVM:

DVM allows you to easily download and install D compilers and manage 
different versions of the compilers.
