Congratulations! I'm glad that LDC's reached the fabled 1.0.0 milestone; I'm looking forward to taking it for a spin.

From the forum link he gave, "It is done - the 1.0.0 release of LDC is available!
There is nothing special about this release - as usual, the LDC team tried to make this the best LDC release ever!"

LDC is really stable for quite some time. I felt that the 0.xx version scheme was no longer appropriate. E.g. many companies still consider a 0.xx version as not production ready. I raised the topic on the newsgroup. Outcome of the discussion was that the first version based on the frontend written in D should be version 1.0. (This is a major milestone.)

In this sense there is nothing special about this version. We tried to make it the best LDC version ever - but we have this goal for every LDC release.

Kai

Because they wanted to. It is major exactly because they have said it is no longer 0.x.y but 1.x.y. Using the usual (albeit fatuous) manager thing that 0.x.y is not ready for production but 1.x.y is: LDC has been production ready for ages, the team have now said that this is so.

Yes. Look at https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16096

I don't have such problem with ldc 1.0.0.
