0.97 release - Announcement

15th of April, 2007

Dear D community

This is the first release candidate release of Tango towards 1.0. This is mostly a bugfix release, plus some news in the packaging department. The most important changes are:

  • bundling of DMD
  • fixes for 64 bit use
  • fixes for Mac OSX use
  • daily snapshots
  • executable installers also on Linux

For a complete list, see the changelog. There are still a few rough edges, so we welcome all feedback and testing. Mac OSX functionality has improved a lot, but we are still seing issues, mostly due to differences between GDC and DMD in addition to a couple of show stopping bugs in the compiler.

DigitalMars have given the Tango team permission to redistribute DMD. This release sees the first packages of these bundles. Executable installers are now also available on Linux, for both DMD and GDC. Please report back on your experiences.
