    v55 v56  
    1818The following **new** features are planned for 7.8 **but have not yet made it**. They are at varying degrees of completeness, and may not all make it in.
    1919
    20  * Jan Stolarek has completed the [wiki:PrimBool boolean-primop story].  But we need a shim package. See [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Compatibility_Modules the compatibility module page].
     20 * Jan Stolarek has completed the [wiki:PrimBool boolean-primop story], but they are going through a major refactoring. Things still on the TODO list for this feature:
     21   * Jan Stolarek needs to refactor code of GHC and boot libraries.
     22   * Jan Stolarek needs to send patches for Alex and Happy to Simon Marlow and patches for primitive to Roman Leschinskiy.
     23   * Simon Marlow needs to update new versions of Alex and Happy to Hackage
     24   * Jan Stolarek can then push his changes into HEAD
     25   * Roman Leschinskiy needs to upload new version of primitive to Hackage
     26   * Herbert Valerio Riedel can then pull latest version of primitive into GHC tree.
     27   * Austin Seipp will implement shim package for backwards compatibility. See [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Compatibility_Modules the compatibility module page].
    2128
    2229 * Trevor Elliot and Iavor Diatchki have implemented [wiki:GhcKinds/KindsWithoutData].  Not yet clear whether they'll be ready for 7.8
