Hi all,

Eduard, Alexandru Jercaianu and I are working on improving allocators' design and implementation. This entails a few breaking changes.

In order to make matters easier for code using allocators, Sebastian Wilzbach created a dub package freezing the existing API: http://code.dlang.org/packages/stdx-allocator. Please use that until we work the kinks out of allocators - great things are coming! - and after that feel free to upgrade code to use the new and improved allocators.

I just pushed a couple of fixes [1] for older Phobos versions and stdx-allocator now works down until 2.072.2. If someone needs an older Phobos version to work with stdx-allocator, please let me know.
Also switching to stdx-allocator is rather easy, e.g.:

sed -i "s/std[.]experimental/stdx/g" **/*.d

Just a friendly reminder to people that experimental isn't expected to be stable. 2.079 will come with this change, switch to stdx-allocator package if you prefer stability. stdx-allocator provides the current code and works down until 2.072.


Also note that only vibe.d ~>= 0.8.3-alpha.1 and vibe-core ~>= 1.4.0-alpha.1 use this package. (though while most projects have been upgraded manually, I hope that we can get a new release of Vibe.d out there soon to avoid any issues - see [1]).
