David Nadlinger recently announced a new version of LDC, the D compiler based on LLVM. If, like me, you are going to use it on Windows, you’ll need a Dwarf 2 build of MinGW-w64. I was going to give it a spin, but forgot that I had recently replaced my Dwarf-2 version of the MinGW with the sjlj version. Once I make some time, I’ll set up a proper LDC environment and test all my D projects with it. Looking forward to it, actually. Heard a lot of good things about this compiler.
If you are an Arch Linux user, you will most likely be interested in this news. Dicebot has taken over maintenance of the D-related Arch packages. Compilers and tools, it all belongs to him now. Find out everything you need to know in his newsgroup announcement thread.
A new release of LDC has been pushed out the door. This one has finally made me interested in giving it a whirl, since it contains an “alpha-quality version” of Win32/MinGW support. Looking forward to trying it out when I can make the time to. Thanks, David!
