    v24 v25  
    1515We (finally) released '''GHC 6.6''' in October 2006. To get GHC 6.6, go to [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download_ghc_66.html Download page]. There was an extended period of release-candidate testing, so we fondly hope that this will be a relatively stable release. There are many improvements, all listed in the [http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/6.6/html/users_guide/release-6-6.html Release notes]. The most important new features include: 
    1616 * Now GHC can execute several Haskell threads simultaneously on different cpus/cores 
    17  * ByteString type for fast and memory-efficent string manipulations 
     17 * `ByteString` type for fast and memory-efficent string manipulations 
    1818 * Unicode source files 
    1919 * Further generalisation of newtype deriving
