Glad to announce the second beta with the following main additions:

- Based on DMD/druntime/Phobos stable from a couple of days ago.
- `pragma(inline, true)` fix when emitting multiple object files in a single cmdline. This may have a significant impact on performance (incl. druntime/Phobos) when not using LTO.
- Complete FreeBSD x86_64 support, incl. CI.
- iOS/arm64 CI, running the debug druntime & Phobos unittests on an iPhone 6S.
- core.math.ldexp 6-14x faster (Linux/Windows) on my i5-3550.

Full release log and downloads: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v1.22.0-beta2

Please help test to ensure a smooth final release, and thanks to all contributors!

Awesome progress, thank you @kinke and everyone else involved!

Which FreeBSD version(s) are supported/have you tested with?

Thanks - tested FreeBSD is current stable, 12.1. For things to work out smoothly, LLD 9+ is required (otherwise linking druntime statically requires an extra `-L-lexecinfo`).
