Can we fix the links to gdcproject.org or change the site?

Hello,

The links on the D IRC channel as well as https://dlang.org/download.html for GDC all point to https://gdcproject.org/downloads, which last appears to be updated several years ago.

Can we archive the old site and make GDC's website redirect to, say, a GCC 11 nightly build? Perhaps it should also have some information on what features are missing and/or the DMDFE version.

It looks bad to have one of the main compilers point to a website with downloads timestamped "2016."

I pointed this out on this forum in May 2019, so don't hold your breath.

A fellow did response and helpfully offered to build a recent version for me -- but the website is really bad advertising for Dlang generally, as you point out.

There's pending changes to move them to an /old path on the site [1], but have not gotten round to pushing it live.

While I don't provide any automated build service, there does exist some build tools within the gdc infrastructure code [2], if someone wants to do some work to create a pipeline for binary builds, please give a shout out and I'll provide a server in order to get that done.
