     43Since External Core was introduced, the {{{IfaceSyn}}} data type has changed. Originally (including in 6.6), it represented external name references using {{{IfaceExtName}}}. Now (in Darcs HEAD), it uses {{{Name}}} instead. This change leaves the External Core parser with the responsibility of generating a {{{Unique}}} for each name it encounters.

    4347  * The LaTeX documentation describes PrimOps in some detail. This information is now in the library documentation, so it is probably not needed in the External Core chapter. 
    44   * {{{IfaceSyn}}} now uses {{{Name}}} ([[GhcFile(compiler/basicTypes/Name.lhs)]]) rather than {{{IfaceExtName}}}.
