    v9 v10  
    1616 * '''External Core''' (output only) is working again, thanks to Tim Chevalier.
    1717
     18  * '''Haddock 2''' (see also #1964 (GHC.Prim), #2335 (build problem))
     19    * Build it with GHC (maybe ship it with GHC too)
     20    * Documentation for GHC API done via Haddock 2
     21
    1822 * '''Extensible exceptions''', along the lines of Simon's paper [http://www.haskell.org/~simonmar/papers/ext-exceptions.pdf "An Extensible Dynamically-Typed Hierarchy of Exceptions"].  This is mainly a library change.  ''Simon Marlow''
    1923
     
    2125
    2226 * '''Shared libraries''', as a result of Clemens Fruhwirth's Summer of Code project.  ''Simon Marlow''
     27   * Binaries get much smaller
     28   * Compile a package on Windows to a DLL; it just works
     29   * C program (or Excel) that calls multiple Haskell functions gets just one copy of the RTS, rather than one per DLL as now.
     30   * Performance penalty, but too small to measure
    2331
    2432 * '''[http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/GHC/Indexed_types Type families]''', fully working. ''Manuel Chakravarty and Simon PJ''
     
    4250  * shared libraries (#1876)
    4351  * Haddock 2 (see also #1964 (GHC.Prim), #2335 (build problem))
     52    * Build with GHC (maybe ship it with GHC too)
     53    * Documentation for GHC API done via Haddock 2
     54
    4455  * encoding/decoding for Text I/O handles. Consensus was that Text I/O should always use the current locale encoding.
    4556  * backwards compat
