On behalf of the LDC team I announce the new 1.3.0 beta1 release!
It is based on the 2.073.2 front-end and supports LLVM 3.5-4.0.
It is the first release ever made at DConf. Feedback is highly
welcome - just talk to me!

LDC now creates static libraries with the help of LLVM instead of
using the operating system ar. This allows for cross-compiling
static libraries without additional tools.
There is also new support for Visual Studio 2017.
Be sure to read the change log at the GitHub release page for all
the details. The packages are available for download at the same
Please note: Due to a problem with the build scripts, not all
binary distributions contain the shared libraries. This will be
fixed in the next beta release.
