dmd 2.063 released with 260 bugfixes and enhancements
Hello,


We are pleased to announce that dmd 2.063, the reference compiler of the 
D programming language, is now available for download for OSX, Windows, 
and a variety of Unixen:

http://dlang.org/download.html

This release brings unprecedented progress over the previous ones, owing 
to a explosive increase in collaboration and a concerted ongoing effort 
to improve process. In all, we've added 260 distinct improvements over 
the exactly 100 days that passed since 2.062. They address language 
definition issues, fix bugs in the compiler and standard library, or add 
new standard library artifacts. For the full story, mosey to the 
redesigned changelog:

http://dlang.org/changelog.html

which itemizes all improvements and offers rationale and examples 
wherever appropriate.

We'll be looking forward for the gdc and ldc compilers to adapt the 
2.063 reference front-end to the gcc and llvm backends, respectively.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all contributors for this 
release, which is a massive accomplishment and a resolute step toward 
fully realizing D's potential. Let's keep up the good work!


Til next time,

Andrei

That would be Andrej Mitrovic.  I agree, he's done a great job 
with it!

It took a really long time to load, though.  It's like the whole 
internet is stopping by to gaze in awe upon our beautiful 
changelog. :)

I said it already in the beta ML, but I'll repeat it here. Awesome step
forward with the changelog, is extremely useful, exactly what
a developer updating the compiler want to see.

Thanks a lot!
