Fantastic! And the time flies, wasn’t it 1.4 just recently? ;)

Out of curiosity, how come the Objective-C integration seem to always lack behind when LDC merges a new DMD release with some new Objective-C integration? Is it less prioritized, not so much knowledge in this area, something else? -- /Jacob Carlborg

Basically all of the latter – many of us LDC devs are not really interested in the Objective-C integration for our own/company use, and kinke (who has been doing virtually all of the frontend merging work lately) IIRC doesn't have access to an OS X box. Not breaking existing features without direct access to a target is one thing, but implementing new features off the CI only is another. Help would be very welcome, though. — David

In addition to what David said, the plan is to have longer beta periods for ldc from here on out, which is why this ldc beta was released so soon after the corresponding dmd release, two weeks, a new record. You're free to test it out and submit issues or pulls before the final ldc release, as I do for Android.
