## Backend changes ##

Debug generation changes are now stable.
Notable improvements:
- Debug generation of module / import statements are complete.  Only
missing GDB changes to effectively use them.
- Methods can now be seen as part of a class/struct
- Inheritance of class members and base objects are now correctly constructed.
- Manifest constants (limited to scalars only) are now visible in debug.

Also improved use of GDC with DUB, various fixes with all-at-once
compilation and our warning/error/deprecation diagnostic model.
