    55Significant changes planned for the 7.4 branch are: 
    6  * changes to the way Safe Haskell works 
    7  * data declarations at the ghci prompt 
    8  * kind polymorphism 
    9  * constraints having a new kind (i.e. not being kind *) 
    10  * unifying and improving the way profiling, hpc, etc work 
     6 
     7 * '''changes to the way Safe Haskell works''' David Terei has improved the design of Safe Haskell since the 7.2.1 release. In particular, it will no longer cause build failures for users who do not explicitly enable it. '''Is this in already?''' 
     8 
     9 * '''declarations at the ghci prompt''' Simon Marlow has extended GHCi so that it is possible to give any declaration at the ghci prompt. For example, 
     10{{{ 
     11Prelude> data D = D Int 
     12Prelude> case D 5 of D x -> print x 
     135 
     14}}} 
     15   This has already been merged, so will definitely be in 7.4. 
     16 
     17 * '''kind polymorphism''' (is this Dimitrios Vytiniotis?) '''TODO''' '''Is this in already?''' 
     18 
     19 * '''constraint kind''' Max Bolingbroke has '''TODO''' 
     20   This has already been merged, so will definitely be in 7.4. 
     21 
     22 * '''profiling and hpc overhaul''' Simon Marlow ... '''TODO''' '''Is this in already?'''
