COMPILER --
Version 1.0 of the LLVM D Compiler (LDC) was quietly released earlier this month as a huge step forward for the D programming language.

LDC 1.0.0 brings support for Objective-C, full ARM platform support, initial support for AArch64/ARM64, better support for Android, support for LLVM 3.8, early support of LLVM 3.9 SVN, and support for linking against the LLVM shared library.

With LDC 1.0.0 for building, a pre-existing D compiler is now required since this D language front-end to LLVM is now written in D itself.

More details on LDC 1.0 can be found via the LDC page on GitHub and via the mailing list announcement>
