vibe.d 0.7.24 release

Header image
Mon, 10 Aug 2015Adds DMD 2.068.0 compatibility and contains a number of additions and fixes in all parts of the library. Some notable changes are the addition of WebSocket support in the vibe.web.web module and the planned deprecation of opDispatch for Json and Bson, as well as the rename of all "SSL" symbols to "TLS". HTTP request handlers can, and should, now take the request/response parameters as "scope", which will later allow to improve performance without compromising safety.
