why gdc9.1 isn't available from gdcproject.org?
May 28
hi,

as heard of the GDC 9.1 release, but I can't find the prebuilt download, the download page of gdcproject.org lists out with version v2.068.2_gcc6 of buildtime
in the year of 2016, it's quite outdated. What I want is to try the GDC9.1 for ARM and MIPS bare-metal targets.


Thanks!

There's never really been any proper binaries available there, I think the entire section should just be replaced with a forwarded link to gcc.

Fortunately, building your own compiler is easy.  Bare-metal ARM target is --target=arm-eabi, and mips would be --target=mips64-elf, you'd only need to go as far as `make all-gcc` I guess.

What should travis-ci users do then?

Debian/Ubuntu tends to be on top of ensuring latest version of gcc is available on the current release.

The semaphoreCI testers use this repo, which covers older releases (though TravisCI runners tend to be fairly ancient).

Fedora 30 and last few Ubuntu releases have GCC with D enabled. If you do not use them and your distro has GCC without D, you need to build it yourself. It is not that hard, just follow the instructions on the gdcproject.org ...
