Released vibe-core 1.0.0 and vibe.d 0.8.0

After a long journey - it took over eight months - the new core package is finally ready. Along with it, version 0.8.0 of vibe.d is released. This marks a major milestone in vibe.d's development.

Apart from offering support for using the new core package, 0.8.0 now also employs @safe and nothrow where possible, making it possible to write fully @safe vibe.d applications. And of course, as always, there is also a long list of other improvements and bug fixes.

The core package can be considered as a complete rewrite of the original vibe-d:core package, retaining a mostly backwards compatible API from a library user's point of view. Lots of changes went into modernizing the code and removing inherent performance limits of the previous design*.

See the dedicated blog post for a basic explanation of the changes:
https://vibed.org/blog/posts/introducing-vibe-core

The change log for vibe.d 0.8.0 is listed here:
https://vibed.org/blog/posts/vibe-release-0.8.0

Finally, to make use of the vibe-core module, which is highly recommended outside of critical production systems, you'll have to manually enable it in the package recipe of your project:

  • dub.sdl:
    dependency "vibe-d:core" version="~>0.8.0"
    subConfiguration "vibe-d:core" "vibe-core"
    
  • dub.json:
    {
        ...
        "dependencies" : {
            ...
            "vibe-d:core": "~>0.8.0"
        },
        "subConfigurations": {
            ...
            "vibe-d:core": "vibe-core"
        }
    }
    

DUB packages:
https://code.dlang.org/packages/vibe-d/0.8.0
https://code.dlang.org/packages/vibe-core/1.0.0

* Note that no dedicated performance tuning has been done yet, so performance levels are expected to still be on a similar level.

When I try to build at Windows 10, dmd 2.074.1 I get the following errors:

Looks like I forgot some old code there. Workaround is to remove
VibeIdleCollect from the package recipe. I'll adapt this for the new code.

Congratulations Sönke! That must have been a great deal of time and effort and I for one very much appreciate it!!

I love D and vibe.d in particular. I hope to contribute in one form or another some time later this year.

Cheers and thanks again,
Andrew.

Thats fantastic news. I only have a very small vibe.d app at home
running on my raspberries, but updating worked very smooth! I only had
to fix some of the @safe warnings, and after 10min, everything worked
again, better than ever! Thanks for this update!

I couldn't find the github repo for the blog post (I had a vague idea the blog was on github), so here go two suggestions:

  • "The package in it's original form" -> "its"

  • "A lot of things about the D language have been different at that time." -> "were different at that time"

It's just in a local database, but the version posts use the content
from CHANGELOG.md. Thanks for the note, corrected now!
