Due to building an packaging requirements and a need to address the concerns of the community, I changed the naming convention for this and all future releases.


The following is our new naming convention:

        major.minor.qualifier

Examples follow:

        #.###.b#  ==> 2.065.b1  // beta
        #.###.rc# ==> 2.065.rc1 // release candidate
        #.###.0   ==> 2.065.0   // initial release
        #.###.#   ==> 2.065.1   // hotfix

Consequently, the name for the previously announced beta has changed. Additionally, installers were prepared and made available. They are as follows:

        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.2.065.b1.zip
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.2.065.b1.dmg
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd_2.065.b1-0_i386.deb
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd_2.065.b1-0_amd64.deb
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd-2.065.b1-0.fedora.i386.rpm
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd-2.065.b1-0.fedora.x86_64.rpm
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd-2.065.b1-0.openSUSE.i386.rpm
        ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd-2.065.b1-0.openSUSE.x86_64.rpm

Note: An installer is not yet prepared for Windows.

It would be nice, IMHO, to have release information in the same fashion VisualD does it. Check: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/visuald/releases . Notice that each release has changelog. -Very nice and professional I think.
