As we prepare for the release of DMD v2.067, I would like to draw attention to the stated Agenda (Agenda#v2.067_.28Oct_2014.29) of this release. Please use it as a guide throughout the review process. Additionally, resolution of outstanding regressions remains significantly important and warrants full attention during the beta testing phase. In the event your particular change did not make it into this release, do not despair. The release process for 2.068 begins exactly four weeks following the release of 2.067 which provides ample time to address your issue.

Binaries will be released in 5 day intervals. We will transition to release candidates in exactly 4 weeks (24 Sept JST, 23 Sept PDT). Release candidates will be made available in three day intervals unless no regressions are fixed during that time. After release of the first RC, only regressions, ICEs and documentation fixes will be cherry-picked to the release branch. Only regression existing at the time RC1 is published can extend the release cycle, which is set to end 4 weeks following release of the first RC (22 Oct JST, 21 Oct PDT). All other regressions will be supported via point releases.
