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. https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#private https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#fix17630 https://dlang.org/changelog/2.079.0.html#fix18219

Some small syntax goodies:

Some noteworthy deprecations:
