On behalf of the LDC team I am proud to announce the new
It is based on the 2.068.2 front-end and LLVM 3.5-3.8.
This second beta version of the new release got extensive
testing. It is known to work several Linux architectures, Windows
64bit, FreeBSD and Solaris.
The compiler now supports NetBSD and has improved support for
OpenBSD and DragonFly, too - though runtime support for these
three BSD flavours is still missing.
We did many internal refactorings, including preparation for a
Win32 compiler. Thanks to the whole team doing this great work.
A special thanks goes to Rainer for the work on the Win32
compiler. A PREVIEW version of this compiler is also made
LDC already supports the new LLVM 3.8 release which is scheduled
for end of February.
Be sure to read the change log at the GitHub release page which
also has the package download links:
Please test this beta version to make it another great relase!
Due to an upload issue with GitHub there is no GZip-compressed
archive for OS X.
