On a slightly related note, I think it would be a good idea to branch off 2.072 and start beta testing right away, as it's been five months since the last point release, and A LOT has changed since then. I fear that we may see a huge number of regressions for this beta cycle because they've just been compounding over this time.


Yes, that was my intention as well. We'll discuss how to proceed in the next few days. On the good side those have mostly been phobos instead of language changes.

AFAIK the dmd work was mostly on C->D conversion and a few smaller fixes for @safe and @nogc. On the bad side phobos changes had the tendency to not care too much about compatibility in the past.

As I've been on vacation the past 3-4 weeks, I still need to catch up and get a better overview.

Thank you for the release!

Please merge 2 ndslice PRs [1] for 2.072. They are required for Mir to exclude ndslice package except experimental ndslice.algotithm and future modules. It is very costly to maintain both Phobos and Mir versions. So I would like to exclude already accepted ndslice modules from Mir. 3 PRs are already merged by Andrei, he also reviewed #4780. #4781 is main preparation for Mir and it contains mapSlice, which was reviewed as ndMap in #4652.
