Well, it’s worse than that. The recent releases haven’t come with any official binaries at all. So if we wanted to make the official Cabal binaries more prominent (good idea) then we should actually generate and link to those binaries (which takes work).
This relates to the discussion I’ve been kicking off about getting some unified and shared build infrastructure so we can crank those binaries out with less work. Until that point though, we should maybe raid halcyon’s builds to actually provide some binaries for the latest releases :-) —gershom On November 10, 2015 at 12:33:24 AM, Miëtek Bak (mie...@bak.io) wrote: > Dear Ryan, > > The Cabal download page hasn’t been updated for a while. > https://www.haskell.org/cabal/download.html > > I think it’d make sense to remove the exhaustive list of platforms supported > by Halcyon > from this page, and make the links to official Cabal binaries more prominent. > > If any mention of Halcyon should be kept on the page at all, perhaps it could > be a short note > at the very end of the cabal-install section, saying something to the effect > of “cabal-install > can also be installed with Halcyon”. > > Regards, > > -- > Miëtek > https://mietek.io > > > > > > On 2015-06-18, at 01:32, Miëtek Bak wrote: > > > > Thanks. cabal-install 220.127.116.11 (and 18.104.22.168) can now be installed with > > Halcyon: > > > > halcyon install --cabal-version=22.214.171.124 > > > > Supported platforms include: > > > > - Amazon Linux 2014.09 > > - Arch Linux > > - CentOS 6, 7 > > - Debian 6, 7, 8 > > - Gentoo Linux > > - openSUSE 13.2 > > - OS X 10.8, 10.9, 10.10 > > - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7 > > - Slackware 14.1 > > - SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 > > - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS, 14.10, 15.04 > > - Fedora 20, 21 > > > > > > -- > > Miëtek > > https://mietek.io > > > > > > > > > > On 2015-06-17, at 09:21, Ryan Thomas wrote: > > > >> Hi all, > >> > >> A new minor release of cabal-install has been released, this is to > >> pick up a fix for @ezyang's fix for #2502. > >> > >> This is now available on hackage and the downloads page and the > >> sha1sum is listed below. > >> > >> Cheers, > >> > >> ryan > >> > >> > >> d474b0eef6944af1abef92419cea13cee50993f3 cabal-install-126.96.36.199.tar.gz > >> _______________________________________________ > >> cabal-devel mailing list > >> firstname.lastname@example.org > >> http://mail.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cabal-devel > > > > _______________________________________________ > cabal-devel mailing list > email@example.com > http://mail.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cabal-devel > _______________________________________________ cabal-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cabal-devel
