Great to see the new update :) well done!

I see you have windows support going back to 2013, linux support going 
back to 2014, but macos only going back to 2020.  I'm developing some 
Zig/wasm stuff on macos 10.12 here (2016) and would love to move on from 
v0.8.1.  Any chance the new compiler design will allow support for older 
macos versions?

Two more requests please.  Update the news section on ziglang.org 
release & road-map, and change the front page json example to include an 
array...  I think that is a fairer representation on the language.

Anyway an exciting time to be learning Zig, thanks!

PS thanks too for the upcoming 'range' feature, something I asked about 
long ago :)

As a general policy, Zig supports whatever the operating system vendor 
supports.
For Linux, we look back to the oldest kernel used by any non-EOL distro.
For Windows, we look back to the oldest version that you can still ask 
Microsoft for help with.
In the case of MacOS, Apple only support the most recent 3 releases.
