Hi GDC

Looking over the gcc release notes for version 12.1 here: https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-12/changes.html I didn't see any mention of gdc supporting newer versions of the d-language. That seems like big deal, is there any way to get a mention in the release notes?

I did see that GDC is now required to make GDC here: https://gcc.gnu.org/install/prerequisites.html so I presume a much newer version of the front end is supported.

Thanks,

The announcement on the forum here: https://forum.dlang.org/thread/qgrchukzyceflenrrmct@forum.dlang.org stated that the D front-end for GCC 12.1 was updated to 2.100.0-rc.1. It would be good to get more visibility on it.

GCC 12.2 will be out on Friday (updated front-end to 2.100.1), I've gotten round to writing up changelog notes for the gcc website, will leave it a couple days before pushing.
