Hi *, A short update on the status of the 1.24 release.
Due to GHC 8 final having been repeatedly postponed we were able to get the nix-local-build work and a bunch of other patches initially targeted for 126.96.36.199 merged before the first release off the 1.24 branch. However, a number of solver issues affecting setup/component dependencies were discovered in the meantime. They are not considered release-critical, but are being actively looked into, and we're hoping to get them fixed before the first 1.24 release. This work is being done on the 'solver' branch in the repo . So right now I'm planning to cut the 1.24 release either soon after GHC 8 RC4 is out, or once those solver patches are merged, whichever comes first.  https://github.com/haskell/cabal/commits/solver _______________________________________________ cabal-devel mailing list email@example.com http://mail.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cabal-devel
