I hope not. That would create lots of problems:
- There are multiple versions of the language.
- What happens when a version dies? What do you tell the
developers (perhaps even businesses) that relied on a version
they downloaded from the official homepage that now have a dead
- What if a developer makes weird changes (like removing int,
which would still be a subset) or goes Windows-only because of
the burden maintaining for multiple OSes? Is that something that
should be promoted on the official homepage?
These are just the problems that immediately come to mind. I'm
sure there are others. Open source is wonderful because it lets
things like this happen. That doesn't mean we want to promote
them on dlang.org.
