    v22 v23  
    2222 * Better '''versioning''' to support separate compilation; perhaps checksums/fingerprints. Already done! 
    2323 
     24 * 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. Done; but ''maybe use it to solve the SE Linux paranoia problem?'' 
    2425 
    2526== Things we plan to do for sure == 
     
    4849  
    4950 * '''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.

    51  * 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. 
    5251 
    5352  * '''Include cabal-install in the release''' (#2385). '''Ian Lynagh''' will do this.
