New/Changed Features

  • added talign() and argTypes() to TypeInfo
  • Upgrade zlib support to zlib 1.2.5
  • std.stdio: Added ByChunk. This struct is a InputRange like ByLine. File.byChunk returns ByChunk
  • std.traits: Most higher-order ranges now work with const/immutable arrays and other ranges with a natural tail const, and ranges w/ const/immutable elements.
  • Bugzilla 4888: Heavy reliance on Bug 3534 in Phobos range usage
  • Bugzilla 4987: C function pointer syntax needs to be deprecated
  • std.typecons: Several improvements to the Tuple struct template:
    • Tuple members are now accessible with the syntax a[0], a[1] etc.
    • Eliminated an internal union. See Bugzilla 4421 and Bugzilla 4846.
    • Worked around Bugzilla 4424. Got opAssign back.
    • Made Tuple.slice!(from, to) to preserve field names if any.
    • Added isTuple!(T) template.
  • std.algorithm: changed filter() such that filter is curryable
  • std.algorithm: Added function balancedParens
  • std.typecons: Deprecated defineEnum
  • Added relaxed purity checking rules.
