DMD 1.015 release
This is NOT the const/final/invariant thing. It is necessary to correct 
a memory corruption bug in the gc.

Re: DMD 1.015 release
Thanks for the release. Could you perhaps give us some information about  
how far you are with D2.0? E.g. branching the documentation, the compiler;  
implementing const/invariant/final, making Phobos const-correct etc. Can  
we expect a release next week? :-)

I keep finding more problems, so I'm not sure when it will be ready.

Like I said, you've it only been a month so far.  And this is the most 
sweeping change to D I've ever been around for.  Even between "ordinary" 
releases, that *don't* change the whole game and *don't* require big 
changes to Phobos, 2-month gaps have not been uncommon.  Given that, 
I'll be tickled pink if we see const-D any sooner than 2 months from now.

I gotta stop trying to make last minute edits to my posts...

Take all the time you need. A good 'first impression' will be imporant with
this change.

That's becoming pretty clear.

Thanks! BTW, the date in the changelog is wrong. We're in June!
