    v29 v30  
    2121
    2222 * 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?''
     23
     24 * '''Backwards compatibility''': we've introduce "base3-compat", a backwards-compatible version of the base library
     25    that will provide essentially the same API as the base library that shipped with GHC 6.8.3, so that code
     26    depending on base-3 will continue to just work.
