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.

  • TODO find out when/whether to release an updated 2.4.2.1 version

template-haskell

  • cleaned up and ready for release

unix

  • cleaned up; almost ready for a 2.7.0.0 release
  • TODO open issue in System.Posix.Process.Common module, remove those functions or leave them?
    {-# DEPRECATED createProcessGroup "This function is scheduled to be replaced by something different in the future, we therefore recommend that you do not use this version and use createProcessGroupFor instead." #-} -- deprecated in 7.2
    
    {-# DEPRECATED setProcessGroupID "This function is scheduled to be replaced by something different in the future, we therefore recommend that you do not use this version and use setProcessGroupIdOf instead." #-} -- deprecated in 7.2
