tsvutils update on forum, release candidate dmd, rant on website weight
See more at the announce forum.
Check this out: https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/9715 someone else is trying to improve dmd's template constraint error messages too! I hope this gets pulled in; to me, D's error messages are the biggest day-to-day hassle of using the language, so I'll take any improvement, even if small and imperfect.
And I'm not immune to this either. I found an old copy of dom.d from 2011, it was about 1/3 the size it is now. When you use dom.d, all that code gets compiled into your executable... even if you don't actually need any more than what was available 8 years ago. My bloat can become your bloat.
I suspect templates and UFCS, when used carefully, can help the linker's dead code removal avoid that, by taking more out of the class' vtable where they are pinned. But that's a hassle too.
Meh, again, I rant, but I am too lazy to care.
