Dear GHC users and co-implementors We are about to return from sabbatical in Oregon back to Glasgow, so now seems a good time to let you know the current state of GHC affairs, and something about our future plans. Simon and Sigbjorn Who's doing what ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Things have been a bit slow this year, because I have been between grants, so there have been no research assistants working on GHC. Sigbjorn has heroically done wonders, but he's really working on his thesis, so I only let him out to play with GHC one day a week these days. Because I've been on sabbatical I have personally had more time to spend on GHC, but I usually cause untold chaos when let loose to play, so you may not have noticed a great improvement. GHC *is* much more beautiful inside, I promise. It's some 10k lines shorter than GHC 0.29 in spite of growing to accommodate Haskell 1.4.
