Hi Guys,

today I have fixed a bug which has been haunting me since 
February, which caused vtbl's to be too short under certain 
circumstances.

It turned out to be an order-dependent off-by-one error in the 
vtbl length computation.

With this puzzler fixed I can now concentrate on getting the 
phobos unit-tests to compile again.

A good day to you all,

Stefan

[...] Still can't wait for newCTFE to land in master. Any updates as to the expected timeframe? T -- By understanding a machine-oriented language, the programmer will tend to use a much more efficient method; it is much closer to reality. -- D. Knuth

That’s great to hear Stefan, way to go! That sure looked like a puzzling issue you showed me. I hope you find the time to bring newCTFE to perfection. Bastiaan.

Like others I can't wait for newCTFE! It may well turn the language from "I have to avoid meta-prog for build times" to "I can do as much CTFE that I want"
