As probably the person who lobbied most heavily for 64-bit support to be
D's next big priority, I want to congratulate Walter. With the latest
checkin, my dstats and std.parallelism libraries compile and pass all
their unit tests in optimized, 64-bit builds. Several of the bugs I was
experiencing had the same root cause, which had to do with conversions
from ulong to double.
I have no more outstanding 64-bit bugs waiting to be filed. Unless
others do, let's release a beta and confine 32-bit address space
limitations to the ash heap of history, at least on Linux.
