But if needed, you could have your dub package depend on a prior version.

This is the answer, vibe.d should depend on stdx-allocator.

Vibe.d (and a lot of other projects) do depend on this package, see e.g.

https://github.com/vibe-d/vibe.d/pull/1983

Also many packages already depend on vibe.d-0.8.3, but it's in rc1 atm and not released as the latest stable tag yet, which is the reason for Atila's justified complaint.

The point is just to persuade Sonke to do his development in the minor version and increase it during every vibe-d release, and keep the patch version for fast fixes of the latest released vibe-d when a new version of the compiler is being released.

The actual policy is just an ask for problems...

It's not a big deal to fix the breakage on the latest released vibe-d code, it's a fast process. But it's a problem in just coordinating the next release of vibe-d with the release of the compiler, if you need to do this, like in this case.
