Glad to announce D 2.079.0.

This release comes with experimental `@nogc` exception throwing (-dip1008), a lazily initialized GC, better support for minimal runtimes, and an experimental Windows toolchain based on the lld linker and MinGW import libraries. See the changelog for more details.

Thanks to everyone involved in this 👏 https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#contributors.

Well done to all! (especially the work on the toolchain)

I'm going to download it and test that import syntax thingo...just to make sure it really is gone ;-)

I've got a blog post coming on this in a few hours, so I would ask anyone considering sharing this on /r/programming before then to please refrain :-)

Could you please add a big visible "experimental" to the lld-link toolchain. It still has a lot of bugs and isn't ready for primetime.

Is is just me or did this release just break the latest non-beta vibe.d? Is the Jenkins build testing the dub packages on master instead of the latest tag?

Good stuff. Still bothers me that we had to special case "throw new Exception();" in order to make it nogc. I can't think of any better ways right now, but I wish it was more explicit.
