  • Status/GHC-6.12

    v19 v20  
    4949 * Further '''library reorganisation''', but with more attention paid to backward compatibility. ''Ian Lynagh'' 
    5050  
    51  * '''GHC API''' improvement: '''Thomas Schilling''' is doing a SoC project. 
     51 * '''GHC API''' improvement: '''Thomas Schilling''' is doing a SoC project.  Preserve comments and pragmas, generic traversals (#1467, #1886, GhcApiStatus). We'll ship whatever Thomas has committed by then. 
    5252 
    5353 * GHC now uses '''libffi''' to implement parts of the FFI, replacing some of the home-grown and very architecture-specific code we had to do this.  Amongst other benefits, this will ease the task of porting GHC in the future. 
    5454 
     55  * Include cabal-install in the release (#2385). '''Ian Lynagh''' will do this. 
    5556 
    5657== Lower priorities for 6.10 == 
     
    6465  * `^C` should raise an exception by default (also SIGPIPE, see #1619, #2301). Nearly done!  But not quite complete if you fork another process.  This latter part is lower priority. 
    6566 
    66   * Initial GHC API improvements: preserve comments and pragmas, generic traversals (#1467, #1886, GhcApiStatus) 
    67   * include cabal-install in the release (#2385) 
    6867  * finish System.Process revamp (#2233)
