why the contradiction on latest version, where is the 2.062 Jan 4, 2013 download ?
(I don't know where to ask this, sorry for another topic, I know 
I was asked not to post here trivial things. But this is not 
about language itself.)

in download section: http://dlang.org/download.html last version 
is: 
http://downloads.dlang.org.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/releases/2013/dmd.2.061.zip

but http://dlang.org/changelog.html says that last version is: 
http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.2.062.zip but that link is dead ? 
So why this inconsistency ?

That's the right one.

Because nobody fixed this bogus changelog entry... Was reported a couple 
of times and indeed it's very embarrassing that it still mentions 2.062 
as if it was released and features a broken link.

And what about the features listed in this bogus entry ? Are they 
in latest legitimate version or the new upcoming ?

These just list the bugs fixed since the last release it seems. So they 
are coming into 2.062, yes. The bogus part is that there shouldn't be 
2.062 entry or it should be marked as alpha/in-progress with a proper 
link to the current nightly-build. Thinking more of it the latter is a 
better idea.
