That needs sorting out then. To fair to PxlBuzzard that was only 
a few months ago. DMD release very frequently. I'd actually 
rather have less frequent but more reliable releases. That's a 
separate issue though.

Chocolatey is probably the best option for keeping dev tools up 
to date on Windows in the same way that Mac users use homebrew 
and Linux users update from their chosen repositories. It's a lot 
easier to 'choco upgrade all -y' and have all my tools updated 
than to individually run scripts for each thing individually.
