Hi everyone,

on behalf of the LDC team, I'm glad to announce LDC 1.8. The highlights of this version in a nutshell:

* Based on D 2.078.3.
* New switch `-link-defaultlib-shared` to link against shared druntime/Phobos.

Aww, just a little bit too late to easily get into Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (since updating LDC will trigger a library transition, I am not sure if a case can be made to still include it).

The new and enforced "-shared" suffixes for the druntime and phobos shared libraries are a bit annoying (especially since this is a breaking change), but at least at Debian we'll follow upstream's defaults on that (it gives weird package names, but aside from that cosmetic issue the breakage caused by that change should be minimal).

Thank you for working on LDC! :-)
