Glad to announce the first beta for the 2.079.0 release, ♥ to the 77
contributors for this release.

As usual please report any bugs at https://issues.dlang.org

This is probably the most feature-laden 2 month release ever.

Highlights:

https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#lazy-gc-init
https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#includeimports
https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#minimal_runtime
https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#toString

There is experimental `@nogc` exception throwing `-dip1008` (still
missing changelog).
Windows got a new experimental toolchain based on the lld linker and
MinGW import libraries. This will hopefully replace OMF in the
long-term without requiring heavy VC installations. Of course VC will
remain the primary toolchain on Windows. (still missing changelog)

A few remaining private symbols leaks have been fixed.
