The Docker images are rebuilt every day automatically.

Can we please select a version we want to test against?

While it would be rather easier to build more Docker images [1] and
add them to the tour [2], I fear that this will be too much
maintenance overhead and will lead to outdated compiler soon.
Also the storage on the machine is limited and we can't drop an
unlimited amount of Docker images there.

What you could do is support the 3 latest versions of the compilers.

Ex. for DMD you would support:
2.077.1
2.076.1
2.075.1

Also the older c++ version (2.06x.x).

What would be the point of that? That's old enough that no one should
really be using it. Targetting it just runs the risk of your code not
working with a recent version of the compiler and standard library.

One word, dmd.

What about it?

- Jonathan M Davis

It is required to be compiled by (I think) 2.068.2 for bootstrapping purposes.

So at the very least there is one code base in very active use by the D community using such an old version. Can't ignore it.
