Is it possible to build LDC based on D 2.076 with latest -betterC feature?

No, we're still ironing out 2.075.

The following code compiles on DMD, but not on LDC (tested versions 1.3.0 and the 1.4.0 beta).

unittest
{
    import std.array : appender;
    import std.format : formattedWrite;

    auto x = appender!(string);
    typeof(x) y;

    formattedWrite(y, "%2s", [0, 1]);
    assert(y.data == "[ 0,  1]");
}

There's a difference between "doesn't compile" and "asserts".
Please always compare to the matching DMD version, 2.074.1 in this case, which produces an empty string as well, I guess because the writer was taken by value in Phobos 2.074.1.

Fair point on the DMD versioning. I think I was only using the most recent DMD. I had thought this capability was added in 2.074.0 when the CT string feature was added, but the changelogs only reference formattedRead, not formattedWrite.

https://dlang.org/changelog/2.074.0.html#std-format-formattedRead

I don't know when it was actually added.
