List of all bug fixes and enhancements in D 2.072.2.

Library Changes

  1. The --DRT-cycle=deprecate runtime switch was added.

    As a follow-up to the fixed module cycle detection in 2.072.0, the --DRT-oncycle runtime switch got a deprecate option. It was made default, instead of --DRT-oncycle=abort, in order to deprecate code that was relying on previously undected module constructor cycles.
