    v57 v58  
    3333 * Geoff Mainland is working generalising the support for SSE-like instructions. ETA: September 13. 
    3434 
    35  * Iavor Diatchki is working on type-level nats (#4385, http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/TypeNats).  The plan is to support simple type-level arithmetic in GHC 7.8. The branch `type-nats-simple` has the code.

    3636 
    3737 * Austin Seipp would like to do some official ARMv7 binary releases with a working stage2 compiler and GHCi, but there are probably some bugs waiting here. 
     
    4848 * Ryan Newton has added a larger set of atomic memory primops than were previously available. 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. 
    4949 
    50  * The Applicative-Monad warnings have been merged (see #8004.) 
     50 * ~~The Applicative-Monad warnings would preferably go in (see #8004.)~~ '''Merged'''.

    5252 * [wiki:NewtypeWrappers Newtype wrappers], by Joachim Breitner. **This will go in soon, but not really be advertised as a stable feature**.
