LDC 1.1.0

Summary

Update LDC to 1.1.0 in Fedora 26.

Owner

Current status

Detailed Description

The LDC D compiler has been lagging behind upstream in Fedora, making it difficult to build software that needs an up to date D compiler, such as Terminix. With this update, LDC in Fedora gets bumped to the latest upstream release, 1.1.0, and hopefully makes it easier for projects using the D compiler to get into Fedora.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora stays in sync with upstream.
