Status of GHC 7.8 Boot Libraries

TODO Update Version History when GHC 7.8 release reaches RC phase.

TODO Hackage needs to be updated to use Cabal 1.18.x

GHC-owned Libraries

Common tasks:

  • TODO clean-up .cabal files

array

  • performed deprecation-removals & major version bump
  • TODO make release

base

  • TODO make sure all recent additions are /Since:/-annotated
  • TODO Deprecated functions since at least GHC 7.4:
    module Control.Concurrent.Chan
    {-# DEPRECATED unGetChan "if you need this operation, use Control.Concurrent.STM.TChan instead.  See http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4154 for details" #-} -- deprecated in 7.0
    {-# DEPRECATED isEmptyChan "if you need this operation, use Control.Concurrent.STM.TChan instead. See http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4154 for details" #-} -- deprecated in 7.0
    
    module Data.Typeable.Internal
    {-# DEPRECATED tyConString "renamed to tyConName; tyConModule and tyConPackage are also available." #-} -- deprecated in 7.4
    
    module Debug.Trace
    {-# DEPRECATED putTraceMsg "Use Debug.Trace.traceIO" #-} -- deprecated in 7.4

parallel

  • Note: extra library (i.e. not part of normal distribution)
  • TODO contains many DEPRECATED functions in Control.Parallel.Strategies since at least 2010:
    {-# DEPRECATED Done "The Strategy type is now a -> Eval a, not a -> Done" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED demanding "Use pseq or $| instead" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED sparking "Use par or $|| instead" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED (>|) "Use pseq or $| instead" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED (>||) "Use par or $|| instead" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED rwhnf "renamed to rseq" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED seqTraverse "renamed to evalTraversable" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED parTraverse "renamed to parTraversable" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED parListWHNF "use (parList rseq) instead" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED seqList "renamed to evalList" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED seqPair "renamed to evalTuple2" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED parPair "renamed to parTuple2" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED seqTriple "renamed to evalTuple3" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED parTriple "renamed to parTuple3" #-}
    {-# DEPRECATED unEval "renamed to runEval" #-}
    

process

stm

  • Note: this is an extra library (i.e. not part of binary distribution); not critical for release; stm-2.4.2 still builds fine with GHC HEAD.
  • cleaned up; repo contains unreleased 2.4.2.1 state
  • TODO find out when/whether to release an updated 2.4.2.1 version
