Hi everyone,

on behalf of the LDC team, I'm glad to announce the first beta for LDC 1.7. The highlights of this version in a nutshell:

* Based on D 2.077.1.
* Catching C++ exceptions supported on Linux and Windows.

Full release log and downloads: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v1.7.0-beta1

Thanks to all contributors!

Is it's possible to produce x64 binaries on Windows x64 without installing Visual Studio? DMD do not have linker for x64.

You could try using the llvm linker, lld, as noted in the release notes for ldc 1.5:


I don't know what's needed to link against functions from the Windows libc though.

could these releases be tied to 'homebrew/linuxbrew' upgrades as part of release process?

John usually submits a pull to homebrew for the betas, may just be behind on this one:


Looks pretty simple, you or any other brew user could easily submit that too.

Very impressive. I'm curious, is the work done to catch C++ exceptions separate from Walter's previous efforts with dmd, or does it build on his work in some way?

As noted in the linked 1.7 release notes, kinke merged ldc's non-MSVC exception-handling with Walter's new DWARF efforts and integrated some work by Rainer for MSVC.
