It appears that gdmd (and to have that, gdc) is present in the 4.6 GCC distribution on Debian but not yet in the 4.7. Is this planned or has there been a problem somewhere?

Thanks.

This package is outrageously outdated. I'm not sure it is planed, but I'm sure we should do our own repos debian. I would work with debian, ubuntu and mint which is a large user base.

AFAICS both Debian and Ubuntu have the latest gdc-4.6, no?

Iain Buclaw mentioned that a 4.7.0 package was in the works for Ubuntu, and I imagine that would work also for Debian without any major hassle.  It should also be possible to maintain a GDC PPA on Launchpad for the most up-to-date packages.

I'm using Debian's gdc-4.6 (4.6.3-1). Is that the latest?

It's the latest in Debian, but as already said - outrageously outdated from the current development branch.

I see. Is there anything that I can help with? I do have upload privileges to the Debian queue. I don't know if I'd be stepping on the toes of the GCC maintainers though (I assume gdc would be under their umbrella?).

Not at all - infact, I've had Matthias informing me every step of the way where GCC has got to (a gentle hint that I'm being chased to update the build package).

If you need his details, I'd be happy to pass them onto you and give you a rundown of how the 4.6 debian build is structured - the package in debian will float down to ubuntu in due course over the next release.

Does that mean that we should not expect to see an updated package in the official Ubuntu repositories until 12.10?  If so, any chance of a PPA for 12.04 and earlier?

Hi Iain,

Speaking of gdc/gcc integration, is there hope we'll make it in the 4.8 iteration of gcc next year? I feel quite uninformed in an important matter so any updates would help. Are we on track, anywhere close, off it? Is there anything the community can do?


Thanks,

Andrei

Sorry I didn't quite understand you, so it's OK for me to upload gdc independently of the GCC team then?

I'd like to know how to build the latest gdc from source, even if just for my personal use (I just ran into a nasty 64-bit bug in dmd, but my current outdated version of gdc doesn't support the new std.regex which I need, so I'm stuck). I can also upload the package if that would help move things along on this front.

Thanks for all your work on gdc!!
