Glad to announce the second beta for LDC 1.19.

It's based on yesterday's DMD stable.
The bundled MinGW-based libs of prebuilt Windows packages have been upgraded to MinGW-w64 v7.0.0, with significant import library additions and changes. So if you target Windows and don't use the Microsoft toolchain, please participate in testing to prevent regressions for the final 1.19 release.

Full release log and downloads: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v1.19.0-beta2

Please help test, and thanks to all contributors!

I have Visual Studio installed. How do I know which import libraries are being used? So far linking Windows libraries worked on COFF targets, so I never looked into them.
I only had some issues with the old OMF ones, so I don't tend to use that target.

Then you're most likely NOT using the MS toolchain, since it has to be explicitly enabled (see README.txt). - It can be verified by checking the DLL dependencies of generated binaries (e.g., dependency on ucrtbase.dll -> most likely NOT using MS toolchain) or linking with `-v` to check the linker cmdline (containing /LIBPATH:...\mingw -> NOT using MS toolchain).

LDC doesn't and has never supported support OMF.
