Compiler changes

  1. scope(failure) blocks that contain return statements are now deprecated

    Starting with this release, having a return statement in the body of a scope(failure) statement is deprecated. Having the ability to return from such blocks is error prone since currently, Errors are also handled by scope(failure). This leads to the following situation:

    ulong get () @safe nothrow
        scope (failure) return 10;
        throw new Error("");
    void main () @safe
        assert(get() == 10);  // passes

    where an error is circumvented by a return. If a return is indeed desired in such situations, then the solution is to simply use a try-catch block for the function body.

    Note: scope(exit) and scope(success) already present this restriction.
