    v37 v38  
    77== Main components == 
    88 
    9  * `TcDeriv.tcDeriving` generates an `InstInfo` for each data type that fulfills the `isRep0` predicate. This `InstInfo` is the `Generic` instance for that type, allowing it to be handled generically (by kind-`*` generic functions). 
     9 * `TcDeriv.tcDeriving` now allows deriving `Generic` instances. 
    1010 
    1111 * The representation types and core functionality of the library live on `GHC.Generics` (on the `ghc-prim` package). 
     
    2121   * `HsNumTy` constructor from `HsType`; 
    2222   * `TypePat` constructor from `Pat`. 
     23 
     24 * The `-XGenerics` flag is now deprecated.
