Thank you for the hard work.
Any hope for the windows/mingw target?

After some tweaking and playing have finally uploaded Arch Linux packages for GDC using 6.2.1 gcc base and https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDC/releases/tag/v2.068.2_gcc6

Now also includes new "libpghobos" package providing shared library only (though I haven't tested this part).

Congratulations!

Sounded very exiting what I heard from Iain recently.

Great, might be time to revive https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/617 soon.

Sounds interesting for dmd as well.

Thanks for updating :)

It's actually all handled by the install.sh script, so you'll also get the latest gdc with `curl -fsS https://dlang.org/install.sh | bash -s gdc` and anything else using that script, e.g. Travis-CI and the Heroku buildpack.

I'll revive the mingw target at some point in time. But this requires changes in upstream druntime/phobos and as long as gdc and upstream are out of sync this requires some extra effort. So mingw support will have to wait till GDC is up to date again.

Sounds like a good idea :-)

You could also use DMD.conf or some nice, custom file format. We have to use the .spec format in GCC/GDC which is quite limited.

Indeed.  Next focus should be on completing this, and getting aligned with the stable branch in upstream DMD.  I think the best way to allow smooth transition would be to align up headers between the last C++ release and current stable, then make sure that the backend is able to deal with both versions without any special treatment.

In my time offline, there's already been dozens of fixes I've pull in to align the headers up.  This may end up in the next increasingly wrong 2.068 release.  Or perhaps just give it the version 2.068.9¾.
