This point release fixes a few issues over 2.074.0, see the changelog for more details.


I'm afraid that the release has another fault: the VERSION file still gives 2.074.0. This means that unless it is edited during the build process, the compiler will report the wrong version number when `dmd --version` is invoked.

All those VERSION files are a mess, in particular the dmd VERSION file currently gets updated at a different point than the dlang.org VERSION files. I'd like to get rid of them all and exclusively use git tags, but there are too many other use cases. Updated the release script to update the dmd VERSION file after a release.

Guess it would help a bit if we bumped the dmd development version WITH the release instead of AFTER the release. Would also match what git describe does, which might be the saner version anyhow.
Should we try to change that for 2.075.0?
