Hi everyone,

I've released version 4.2.1 of raylib-d. This version is an attempt to fix the issues with linking on Windows.

It introduces a new subproject, raylib-d:install, which will copy a pre-built binary library of the appropriate version to your project directory. While this is far from complete, it provides a required feature for Windows. Namely, a fix for a faulty bug in the new symbol introduced for raylib 4.2.0 that allows us to validate the binding is correct. The symbol I use was not properly exported for the dll version of raylib.

I have included in the repository a correctly built raylib.dll, which now allows linking on Windows.

At present, the only platform supported with the raylib-d:install script is Windows on X86_64. If you need a pre-build binary for your platform, please open an issue. Note the docs say I have binaries for MacOS x86_64 and arm64, but these are not working at the moment. There is an issue with dub, where it does not properly clone symbolic links, which I believe is caused by Phobos std.zip. I will eventually work around this issue, and eventually I plan to be smarter about the binary files.

However, for those of you who have wanted to upgrade to raylib-d for 4.2.0 on Windows, but have ran into linker errors, this is the solution. Please read carefully the new README as I have rewritten it to include detailed instructions (including how to run the new install script)

I expect a further release to fix the issues with installing MacOS binaries soon.

Congrats!
…and thanks for working on making your library more accessible.
