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
Late to the party, but congratulations and great work on another
impressive release! Thanks to everyone involved!
Just wanted to report a very large decrease in build performance.
Compare a debug build on Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit with ld.gold.
Since this release is not critical for us, despite including many
great changes, we will also stick to DMD 2.070.2 and hope for a
fix in a future release, if at all possible.
