    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)
