Hi everyone!

On behalf of the LDC team I am proud to announce the new 
0.17.0-beta1 release!
It is based on the 2.068.2 front-end and LLVM 3.5-3.7.

This is the first beta version of the new release. It contains 
many internal refactorings, including preparation for a Win32 
Thanks to the whole team doing this great work. A special thanks 
goes to Rainer for the work on the Win32 compiler.

Be sure to read the change log at the GitHub release page which 
also has the package download links:

Please test this release to make it another great one!

There are some known bugs:
- FreeBSD requires a fix from master
- OpenSolaris has a compile error in druntime
- Release is not yet checked on Linux/PPC and Linux/PPC64

Due to an upload issue with GitHub there is no GZip-compressed 
archive for OS X.

Regarding the binaries:
The Linux binaries are built on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with gcc 4.8.x 
and LLVM 3.7.0. They work on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (or later) without 
installing additional software.

The OS X binaries are built with LLVM 3.6.2 on OS X 10.10.

The Win64 MSVC version is built with VS2015 using LLVM 3.7 in 
release mode. The distribution now contains a precompiled libcurl 
7.40.0 from http://d.darktech.org/libcurl.html. For any other 
VisualStudio version you need to rebuild the library.
You find the build script here:
