I've reported them in bugzilla, the most important for me is 
http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=5582 (Improvements to the 
DLL startup code).

This version of dmd is the first one that does not need patching dmd to 
compile visuald, though it misses some goodies. The library still needs 
to get my hands a little dirty.

A few things noted on the beta:

- the regression on join(stringarray, std.string.newline) not working is 
still in there
- the generated druntime import files have mixed line-endings: 
everything seems CR LF, but not after "static this();", it's LF only there.
