Hi everyone!

It is done - the 1.0.0 release of LDC is available!
There is nothing special about this release - as usual, the LDC team tried to make this the best LDC release ever!
It is based on the 2.070.2 front-end and supports LLVM 3.5-3.8.

A big thank to the team and all of our users! Whithout you this great release would not be possible!

This is not the end: I am already preparing an 1.1 release. Stay tuned!

Be sure to read the change log at the GitHub release page which also has the package download links:
https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v1.0.0

Regarding the binaries:
The Linux x86/x86_64 binaries are built on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with gcc 4.8.x, ldc2 1.0.0 and LLVM 3.8.0. They work on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (or later) without installing additional software.
The Linux armv7hf binary is built on Gentoo/ARM with gcc 4.9.x, ldc2 1.0.0 and LLVM 3.8.0.

The OS X binaries are built with LLVM 3.8.0 on OS X 10.10.

The Win32 and Win64 MSVC versions are built with VS2015 (update 2) using ldc2 1.0.0 and LLVM trunk in release mode. The distribution now contains a precompiled libcurl 7.46.0 from http://d.darktech.org/libcurl.html. For any other VisualStudio version you need to rebuild the library.
You find the build script here: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc-scripts/blob/master/ldc2-win64/RELEASE.proj

Please be sure to report any bugs at https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/issues, and feel free to drop by at the digitalmars.D.ldc forums (http://forum.dlang.org/group/digitalmars.D.ldc) for any questions or comments.

Thanks to everybody involved in making this happen!

Regards,
Kai

We like this.

Many thanks to Kai, David, and all who have contributed over the years.

Having a "not DMD" compiler that is up to date (sorry GDC) is a huge
win for marketing D.

Cool!

To gain more attraction, an official press release from the D Foundation
should be send out to all IT-magazines.

I got my first hint to D via this announcement of
D compiling with D: http://www.heise.de/developer/meldung/Programmiersprache-D-Compiler-ist-jetzt-selbst-in-D-geschrieben-2869589.html

Regards mt.

:-) I always give the Heise Newsticker a hint about new releases. But it looks like LDC is not yet as interesting as other software packages.

D Foundation should indeed be issuing a press release on this to all the IT press worldwide.

The problem is that the D Foundation currently only contains Ali, Andrei and Walter. As you can imagine, they don't have much time for such things and it's already impressive to see Andrei in reddit from time to time. Hence you should definitely push this up to the general NG, but the short gist is: help them! Write the press release yourself and send it off to the press. Alternatively send it over to A/W for approval.
