[bindings/win32] Migration from typedef
Now that typedef is deprecated in D2, how should libraries that 
support both D1 and D2 adjust? Should it be simply changed to an 
alias, or replaced with a string mixin hack? What's the impact of 
changing typedefs to aliases in a widely-used library?

I was hoping that D2 would allow typedefs in a version statement, but 
that's not the case. D2 still recognizes "typedef" so it's not the same 
problem as with D1 and the new D2 keywords.

I'd like to know this too. Currently wxd won't link if I change a
typedef to an alias due to multiple definitions.

Here's a proposed patch:
http://dump.thecybershadow.net/3c5de02d8929799da17b3dbeabfa3576/typedef.diff

The TypeDef template is defined in basetsd.d (third file in diff).

Seems to work with D1 and D2.

Perhaps we should wait for the upcoming TypeDef library type in 
Phobos for D2?

I'll commit it if there are no objections/suggestions...

I've had the same problems here on my linux box + some others.
But i've just finished fixing them and DMD 2.057actually successfully builds
the little testing app i'm developing to become more acquainted with D.

It is tested under Linux 32 bit only (OpenSuse 11.4 + Open Suse 12.1/64 
using -m32)
but i think it should also work on Windows.

if you want to give it a try, checkout the 'dmd257linux' branch from
