The changelog mentions DMD 2.059 as released on April 1, 2012, but there is no link to it. Is it released?

It's not released yet.

This is why listing the next release on that page is a bad idea...

OK. Maybe if the page said "Unreleased" or "Expected release date xxx"...

I don't think it was intended but don't trust anything that is dated April 1. :p

I noticed that as well last night, got excited, and then was quickly confused. :/ Especially since it's clickable.

I think that it's a side effect of how the beta is dealt with, but I don't know (2.059 is in beta right now - head to the beta list if you want to discuss it). Certainly, I'd argue that it shouldn't be listed until it's actually released and that if it's been done on purpose, it's that much worse.

All it needs is a paragraph to state the truth.
next release is still in progress, can be checked out from github
linkhere, built, tested,
these are the features and fixes thought already done,
list of other stable point goal feature/fixes of next release, hopeful
date when done. Usual warning of unstable bits.

Or point a link to github page stating similar.

Surely thats not too difficult?
