GHC 6.10.2

Authors: Lennart Kolmodin <kolmodin@gentoo.org>

News with GHC 6.10.2

We've in Gentoo Linux has made some changes to the vanilla GHC application:

  • Use readline instead of libedit

Packages currently in portage, masked. To try them, unmask the following packages;

  • dev-lang/ghc
  • dev-haskell/haddock
  • dev-haskell/parallel

ghc-updater

The application ghc-updater will search for packages installed with your older ghc version, and try to upgrade them.

First, update your haddock to 2.4.2. Then run ghc-updater. Any known problems for portage users?

Potentially broken packages

Due to the recent changes with the base packages, exception handling etc, we need to make extra sure that the packages in portage still works with GHC 6.10. We should look for, and test, the latest ~arch version, as well as the latest stable version for each package.
