 Fixes the Tango build breaks.

And thank's a lot for this release. I was finally able to compile QtD almost without patching dmd (only patch from#3600). Getting rid of the forward reference bugs is a big milestone. We just have to make sure that there won't be regressions. Somebody mentioned a while ago about a service, that would build big D projects with the newest compiler version to avoid regressions. This idea I believe is worth discussing.

I was wrong, there is still a forward reference bug in dmd, which I cannot reduce to a testcase, considering the size of the library.

Have you tried http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=102 ?

WoW! I wonder why that patch is not already in DMD, since Don said that it passes the DMD test suite, and not only fixes 102, it also fixes 461, 2386, 2654 and 2666, not counting a couple of already fixed bugs. I think Rainer Schuetze deserves a lot of credit, I think his practically at the same scale as Don fixing important bugs, I hope Walter realizes that and had him the DMD test suite as well (or even better, releases the test suite ;). Thanks for the quick release fixing the regressions! -- Leandro Lucarella (AKA luca) http://llucax.com.ar/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------- GPG Key: 5F5A8D05 (F8CD F9A7 BF00 5431 4145 104C 949E BFB6 5F5A 8D05) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you.

I am all for it. The patch I have just posted in this thread is also by Rainer. He has done a significant amount of work to make dmd compile QtD.
