Release Candidate [was: Re: Beta 2.098.0]
September 29

Glad to announce the first beta for the 2.098.0 release, ♥ to the 62 contributors.

http://dlang.org/download.html#dmd_beta
http://dlang.org/changelog/2.098.0.html

This release is quite a bit delayed due to OSX build woes and some personal lack of time.

As usual please report any bugs at
https://issues.dlang.org

The changelog is outdated, the entries in master should be moved to stable and then the changelog folder on the master branch can be purged.

Thanks for your time! - Tests with latest beta3 are looking good for the Symmetry code base, incl. significant RAM reductions when building huge static libs (saving ~3 GB in one case).

This is just uncalled for. I'm sure you can express what you mean without pointlessly and wrongly insulting the reason we have this language, a person who put more than twenty years of their life into this project.

Agreed.

It's totally OK to criticize, but one should do it in a constructive way

Aside from the tasteless (and incorrect) attack here, creating an issue, even for a small change, puts something into the changelog automatically.

So there is a reason to open an issue for a PR you are just about to merge. In fact, sometimes it's noted as a prerequisite for a PR to reference a given issue.

Temtaime said that Walter is setting the wrong priorities. Saying that he is doing "nothing useful" is a bit polemic, of course, but that probably stems from frustration. In context, it's hardly an "insult".

It's absolutely true that many reported issues don't get fixed for *years*. And that very much includes serious bugs. As far as I can tell, it's also true that Walter prioritizes new features instead (ImportC is the latest fad).

I sympathize with Temtaime. Their criticism wasn't sugar-coated, but it is constructive and it is valid in my opinion.
