75 What's new in 2009.2.1-rc1:
76
77 * The platform installer is now relocatable (all libraries are installed
78 into a single directory, and referred to via '$topdir' in package.conf).
79
80 * The default install directory no longer contains spaces (it was changed to
81 $SYSTEMDRIVE\HaskellPlatform\$PLATFORM_VERSION).
82
83 Known issues:
84
85 * The network and time libraries shipped with GHC 6.10.3 were replaced with
86 versions specified in the 'haskell-platform.cabal' file (2.2.1.1 and
87 1.1.2.4 instead of 2.2.1 and 1.1.3, respectively).
88
89 * The issue of upgrading wasn't given much thought, so you're advised to
90 delete the previous Haskell Platform installation before using this
91 installer. OTOH, our behaviour is no worse than that of the existing GHC
92 installer.
93
94 * The installer may work with restricted user accounts, but it has not been
95 tested and is not officially supported. The "just unpack" option should
96 work, however, since it doesn't do anything fancy.
97
98 * glut32.dll is not included, though it probably should be.

102 What's new in 2009.2.0-rc1:
103
104 * We now use a single root directory for both GHC and extralibs
105 ($PROGRAMFILES\Haskell Platform\$HP_VERSION).
106
107 * Installed files are tracked precisely (no unsafe `rm -rf` business).
108
109 * A new installation mode which doesn't touch the system settings or
110 registry was introduced. Suggested by Claus Reinke.
111
112 * Installer size was cut down by 50% by turning on 7z compression (thanks to
113 Bulat Ziganshin for the heads-up).
114
115 * The welcome screen is now slightly less dull.

120 tested and is not officially supported. The "minimal install" option (just
121 unpack the files) will most probably work, however, since it doesn't do
122 anything fancy.
