    4242   The plan is/was to use dynamic GHCi on as many platforms as possible in 7.8, and to remove support for non-dynamic-ghci in HEAD soon after. See discussion in #8039, however.

    44  * Ryan Newton has added a larger set of atomic memory primops than were previously available.  The code can be found on the `atomics` branch).  The set of PrimOps may continue to expand slightly, but will definitely be ready for 7.8.  In future work, Carter Schonwald will provide optimized (inline) versions of these PrimOps, at least for the LLVM backend. 
     44 * Ryan Newton has added a larger set of atomic memory primops than were previously available.  The code was developed on the `atomics` branch, which is now merged.  The set of PrimOps may continue to expand slightly, but for now includes `casArray#`, `casIntArray#`, and `fetchAddIntArray#`.  In future work, Carter Schonwald will provide optimized (inline) versions of these PrimOps, at least for the LLVM backend.

    4646 * The Applicative-Monad warning would preferably be integrated. See #8004. David LDavid Luposchainsky is driving this.
