GHC Weekly News - 2015/02/23

Hi *,

It's once again time for your sometimes-slightly-irregularly-scheduled GHC news! This past Friday marked the end of the FTP vote for GHC 7.10, there's an RC on the way (see below), we've closed out a good set of patches and tickets from users and pushed them into HEAD, and to top it off - it's your editor's birthday today, so that's nice!

Quick note: as said above GHC HQ is expecting to make a third release candidate for GHC 7.10.1 soon in early March since the delay has allowed us to pick up some more changes and bugfixes. We plan on the final release being close to the end of March (previously end of February).

This week, GHC HQ met up again to discuss and write down our current priorities and thoughts:

  • After discussing our current timetable - as we're currently hovering around the ICFP deadline - we're hoping to make our third GHC 7.10.1 release candidate on Friday, March 13th, with the final release on Friday, March 27th. This was the main take away from our meeting today.

We've also had a little more list activity this week than we did before:

Some noteworthy commits that went into ghc.git in the past week include:
