After upgrading to DMD 2.076 the following code was broken, because of changed
type specifier:

import std.stdio;
import std.datetime;

DateTime DateTimeFromPGTimestamp( const(char)[] dateString )
    auto temp = dateString[0..10] ~ "T" ~ dateString[11..19];
    return DateTime.fromISOExtString(temp);

void main()
    auto result = DateTimeFromPGTimestamp("No matter what is there!");


Compilation output:
/opt/compilers/dmd2/include/std/datetime/date.d(3197): Error: cannot implicitly
convert expression `strip(isoExtString)` of type `const(char)[]` to
/d578/f601.d(7): Error: template instance
std.datetime.date.DateTime.fromISOExtString!(char[]) error instantiating
