    44GHC includes a new (in 2010) mechanism to let you write generic functions.  It is described in paper [http://www.dreixel.net/research/pdf/gdmh_nocolor.pdf A generic deriving mechanism for Haskell]. This page sketches the specifics of the implementation; we assume you have read the paper. The [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Generics HaskellWiki page] gives a more general overview.

    6 This mechanism replaces the [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/6.12.2/html/users_guide/generic-classes.html previous generic classes implementation]. What we describe until the "Kind polymorphic overhaul" section is implemented and released in GHC 7.0.1.
