There is a pull under consideration to change ldc's version number to match dmd's 2.08x numbering, with a different ldc patch version to keep some flexibility, ie ldc 2.080.0 would be released with the dmd 2.080.1 frontend instead of the recent numbering of ldc 1.9.0 with the dmd 2.079.1 frontend:

If you package ldc for some package repository, as I do with the Termux package repository for Android, please chime in if this version numbering jump might cause a problem for you, either here or on the pull.

If you're a user who might be affected by this, your input is welcome too, please chime in here.
