    v18 v19  
    197197   and read it in again, surviving the round trip unscathed.  
    198198 
    199  * '''Simon M please amplify''' 
    200    GHC API changes, compile to object code inside GHCi 
    201  
    202  * '''Simon, can you write something about GHC-Haddock, even if 
    203    it's just a pointer to the Haddock entry?''' 
    204    
     199 * It is now possible to compile to object code instead of bytecode inside GHCi, simply by setting a flag 
     200   (`-fobject-code`). 
     201 
     202 * The GHC API has seen some cleanup, and it should now be both more complete and slightly easier to use. 
     203 
     204 * David Wearn has been working on integrating Haddock and GHC during his Google Summer of Code project 
     205   last year.  The parts of this project that involved modifying GHC are done and integrated into the 
     206   GHC tree.  The new version of Haddock based on GHC is usable but still experimental; the darcs repository is [http://darcs.haskell.org/SoC/haddock.ghc here].

    210213   builds of GHC are quicker as they don't need to build those libraries.

    212 '''Simon M or Ian pls elaborate''' 
    213  
    214215 * base package breakup (see discussion on libraries list)
