    118== Notices == 
    129 
     
    1512 * [wiki:Internships] at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, working on Haskell and GHC 
    1613 
    17  * Our current thinking about [wiki:GhcPackages enhancing GHC's support for packages]. 
    18  
    1914== Release cycle status == 
    2015 
    21  * The GHC 6.6 release cycle has begun, see [http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/glasgow-haskell-users/2006-August/010698.html this message].  Look at the [query:?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&milestone=6.6&order=priority tickets scheduled for 6.6]. 
    22  * There are now Darcs repositories for the GHC 6.6 branch: `ghc-6.6/ghc`, `ghc-6.6/packages/*`, `ghc-6.6/testsuite`, `ghc-6.6/nofib`.  Bug-fixes only in these repositories, please! 
    23  * There will be a 6.4.3, to correct some serious platform-specific bugs in 6.4.2.  Look at the [query:?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&milestone=6.4.3&order=priority tickets scheduled for 6.4.3]. 
     16 * The darcs repositories for the 6.6 branch have been created (see DarcsRepositories). 
     17   6.6 has been tagged and released, and the next release from this branch will be 6.6.1. 
     18   Bug-fixes only on the 6.6 branch; no API changes from now on. 
    2419 
    25 == Downloading snapshots == 
     20 * The 6.4 branch now has some fixes relative to 6.4.2 that fix problems with the threaded 
     21   RTS on various platforms (notably MacOS X and Solaris).  We intend to tag this branch 
     22   as 6.4.3, but will probably not do a full-scale release. 
    2623 
    27  * [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download.html#snapshots Download snapshots] here.  This link also 
    28    gets you to a typeset user manual for the current snapshot. 
    29  
    30 == The bug tracker == 
    31  
    32  * See the menu on the left to query or add to the bug tracker. 
    33   
    34 == Getting Started == 
    35  
    36 How to get started with hacking on GHC: 
    37  
    38  * [wiki:Building/GettingTheSources Grab the latest sources] 
    39  * [wiki:Building/Hacking Set up your build tree] 
    40  * Pick an easy [query:?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&type=bug&order=priority&group=difficulty  bug report] or [query:?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&type=task&order=priority&group=difficulty  task] to work on 
    41  * Useful information about GHC's architecture is in the [wiki:Commentary] 
    42  * Hack away... ask questions on [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/cvs-ghc the cvs-ghc mailing list] 
    43  * Submit patches back, using {{{darcs send}}} is the recommended way. 
    44  
    45 == Miscellaneous == 
    46  
    47  * [wiki:TracWikiMisc Miscellaneous notes on Trac Wiki]. Information not easily found (or not at all!) on Trac Wiki documentation. Probably this is the page to look if you are having trouble formatting TracWiki pages. 
    48  
    49  * [wiki:Status Biannual GHC status reports]. Regular summaries of GHC's development status highlighting recently added functionality. 
     24[http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download.html#snapshots Snapshot distributions] of both branches are available.

    5227= Developer Documentation = 
    53  
    54 This section collects information intended for people who would like to help work on GHC's source code. 
    55 The most important pieces of documentation are: 
    5628 
    5729 * [wiki:Building Building and Porting GHC][[br]] 
     
    6133   Documentation on the design, architecture, and implementation of GHC itself, 
    6234   with references to the actual source code.  (Don't confuse this with the [http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~chak/haskell/ghc/comm old commentary].  This one is new and up to date.)

    65 == Contributors ==
