Hi everyone!

On behalf of the LDC team I am proud to announce the new 
1.1.0-alpha1 release!
It is based on the 2.071.1 front-end and supports LLVM 3.5-3.8.

This brand new alpha release contains a of of bug fixes and 
changes. Highlights are the support for profile-guided 
optimization and cross-module inlining. But there are lot of 
other changes - be sure to read the release notes!

We now bundle DUB with LDC in the binary distribution files. The 
Win64 binary packages now includes the 32bit libraries, too.

Please, try this alpha1 release. Every feedback we get can only 
improve the compiler. There are still some known bugs. Most 
important, use dub --compiler=ldmd2 on Windows to prevent a path 
naming problem.

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