    33A big event occurred earlier this year in July: the news that Ian Lynagh would be leaving Well-Typed - and consequently, GHC HQ - to move onto new challenges. Ian worked on GHC for 7 years full-time, helped write our new build system, redesigned large parts of the compiler, and fixed innumerable other issues over the course of his work with us. [https://github.com/ghc/ghc/graphs/contributors According to some statistics] for the past 7 years or so, Ian quite clearly is one of the biggest contributors we've ever had. And we should take the time to say what is rightfully deserved: **thank you for everything you've done for us, Ian**!

    5 While Ian has not completely disappeared, GHC and Haskell are not his day-job anymore. As a result, this means everyone - including those friends reading this - have a huge opportunity to help continue making GHC even better. Luckily, all the evidence of the past few months points towards a tremendous surge in community involvement. GHC is a community project, and the community is what keeps us afloat. **A great thanks goes to all those who have helped us come so far**!

    77In light of this, Well-Typed has added two new hires to GHC HQ to keep things moving, and help the development process going forward: **Edsko de Vries** and **Austin Seipp**.
