Latest DMD for Windows downloaded from here: https://downloads.dlang.org/releases/2.x/2.105.3/dmd-2.105.3.exe reports version as dirty:

what does it mean by dirty?
Something in the build process changes a file and therefore the thing that checks the version marks it as dirty. It’s perfectly fine, this is the official release.
It’s a bit embarrassing to be honest. The windows binaries have been reporting dirty for years and nobody cares to fix it.
