I have a mixed feelings about this release. It has some really

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11946 is just small
disaster - complicated by the fact that no one but Kenji seems
to be able neither to fix it nor even revert it.
I don't know if we can do anything better about it.
I agree, I am also surprised that 2.066 was released despite the
regressions. I uncovered a few just by accidentally instructing
someone on #d to build their project against git HEAD. Most of
the regressions were found in his project's dub dependencies -
libraries published on code.dlang.org.
I was thinking of trying to see if more projects on the dub
registry failed to build with the 2.066 RC once the current round
of regressions was resolved.
How is it decided when it's time to cut off a new release? Do we
have two RCs and that's it?
