How much of it actually depends on the compiler though? I'd be a little surprised if we couldn't backport at least 80% of phobos to 2.067/2.068 with zero changes.


I have no idea, I think you are probably right. But having a compiler and phobos out of sync sounds even worse than the way it is now. A better solution for me would be to just stick with a version and wait for gdc to catch up but honestly it seems like as soon as a new version comes out I hit some bug that is only fixed in the latest version, forcing me to upgrade.

For example this literally happened days ago, I am currently at 2.069 and the other day I needed to call some winapi stuff, only to realize the winapi bindings are way outdated, well guess what they are updated in 2.070. Its amazing how often I hit a problem and then find out its fixed in the next version.
