Glad to announce D 2.071.0.
I read somewhere recently about performance regressions in DMD.
Were these related the import and module fixes? Were they
fixed? Do they depend on any dmd switches?
I just updated one of my projects from 2.069.0 to 2.071.0, and
saw the build time jump from ~1.7s to ~2.5s. Take this single
informal data point with a huge grain of salt obviously, but I am
also curious about the details of this. DMD's speed is one of D's
selling points to me, and I might roll back until performance
improves if there isn't a straightforward fix.
Agreed though, otherwise a great release. Thanks for everyone's
