    2727 * '''Data Parallel Haskell''' (DPH) comes as part of GHC, as a result of Roman Leshchinskiy's efforts.  In 6.10, for the first time, DPH includes a full vectoriser, so the system is much more usable than before.  It's still really an alpha release though; we very much welcome friendly guinea pigs, but it's not ready for your 3 gigabyte genome search program.  We have a lot of performance tuning to do.  We've written a new paper [http://research.microsoft.com/%7Esimonpj/papers/ndp/index.htm Harnessing the multicores: nested data parallelism in Haskell] (FSTTCS'08), which gives a tutorial overview of the system, focusing especially on vectorisation.

     29 * '''Shared Libraries''', are inching ever closer to being completed.  Clemens Fruhwirth has been working on polishing the support for shared libraries on Unix systems in particular, and when the remaining issues are ironed out we should be able to roll them out in a release.
