New/Changed Features

  • Renamed root directory \dmd to \dmd2
  • Use of with symbols that shadow local symbols is no longer allowed
  • Added final switch statements
  • Added case range statements
  • Implicit integral conversions that could result in loss of significant bits are no longer allowed.
  • Warning on no return expr; is now an error.
  • Bugzilla 3080: dmd should output compilation errors to stderr, not stdout
  • Bugzilla 3122: [patch] Adding support for fast and reliable build tools to the frontend
  • std.algorithm: Made std.algorithm.swap faster by having it use memcpy; added, std.algorithm.until, std.algorithm.nWayUnion, std.algorithm.largestPartialIntersectionWeighted; added additional constraints to std.algorithm.equal; changed signature of std.algorithm.topNIndex and std.algorithm.topNCopy to use an enum parameter instead of a confusing bool.
  • std.array: added array function.
  • std.conv: added Shin Fujishiro's code for printing and parsing enumerated values.
  • std.ctype: made isupper and tolower pure.
  • changed signature of benchmark to return ulong[] instead of uint[].
  • std.demangle: changed it to use the snazzy switch statement with ranged labels.
  • std.random: added randomSample
  • std.string: deprecated std.string.find and std.string.find, replaced with std.string.indexOf; deprecated std.string.rfind and std.string.irfind, replaced with std.string.lastIndexOf; added flag CaseSensitive for indexOf and lastIndexOf; removed startsWith and endsWith because std.algorithm defines them; defined std.string.byDchar.
  • std.traits: added isSomeChar, isPointer.
  • std.typetuple: replaced indexOf with indexOfType, kept the old name as an alias that will be deprecated.
  • std.utf: improved error messages.
