Is is just me or did this release just break the latest
vibe.d? Is the Jenkins build testing the dub packages on
instead of the latest tag?
It's great that there's an issue for vibe.
This doesn't change the fact that right now, somebody trying D
1st time with the latest official compiler will get an error
if they try
out the most popular dub package that I know of if they follow
instructions on code.dlang.org.
It also doesn't change that I can't upgrade dmd on our CI at
because it can't compile vibe unless I change dozens of
dub.sdl files to
use a beta version. This breaks semver!
I found out about this after removing a dependency on
since dmd >= 2.078.0 broke it (by breaking taggedalgebraic.
Yes, I filed
a bug.). I can upgrade from 2.077.1 to 2.078.3,but not 2.079.0.
I'd have a snowball's chance in hell convincing anyone at a
company of adopting D if anyone there even imagined any of the
We have to do better than this.
May I make a recommendation? Only upgrade to the 2.0xx.2[.3]
releases. You'll have to wait a month or so for the latest
features, but by then the important packages will have been
upgraded and the regressions (mostly) worked out. It's kind of
like the old saying about Microsoft software. "Never use the
first version of anything". If we treat the .0 releases as "v1"
then it fits. :)
The problem with that is I was waiting for 2.079.0 since it fixes
a bug that prevented me from upgrading to any of the 2.078.x
releases on Windows.
And then there's the fact that the last time I had issues
upgrading gcc or clang was... never.
I'm more than ok with compiler upgrades breaking my code when it
was wrong in the 1st place, or with language updates breaking
code but making the situation better as a whole. That's not
what's been happening to me with the last few versions.
