The (Interactive) Glasgow Haskell Compiler -- version 6.2
   
A binary package for Mac OS X version 10.3 (Panther) is now available at

http://www.uni-graz.at/imawww/haskell/GHC.6.2.dmg

Includes OpenGL support.
It will probably not work on Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar).
I don't have a machine with 10.2 left, so I won't be able to release a 
package for 10.2.

Cheers,

Wolfgang

And, for Christmas, we at Debian bring you sackful of debs!

For x86, alpha, hppa, ia64 and powerpc there are packages for unstable
in the main Debian archive (these will move into testing early in the
new year). apt-get update; apt-get install ghc6 ghc6-prof ghc6-doc as
normal, with ghc6-hopengl, ghc6-threaded-rts and ghc6-libsrc providing
the extra bits for those who want them.

For x86 I've also compiled for stable and uploaded to Isaac's Haskell
Experimental repository. To use it add this line to
/etc/apt/sources.list: 
  deb http://www.syntaxpolice.org/haskell-experimental/ stable/
and install as above.

Unfortunately things aren't quite back to normal after the recent Debian
break-in, so sparc and s390 builds haven't been done yet. Also, only
x86, sparc and ia64 are registerised builds. I'll try a powerpc
registerised build when I can log in to a suitable machine again.


Hope you're all enjoying yourselves!

Fantastic!  Actually, I already downloaded them a couple of

announcement.

*THANKS!*  Both for the developers and for the packagers, who
take the pain of providing Woody packages, too!

Merry Christmas!

This is a full build, with profiling libs and ghci, but no docs.

The ia64 port requires an external libgmp, installed in some sensible

Correct - the libraries docs are now build with the latest version of

ANNOUNCE: GHC version 6.2

2003-12-16 Thread Simon Marlow

   
The (Interactive) Glasgow Haskell Compiler -- version 6.2
   

We are pleased to announce a new major release of the Glasgow Haskell
Compiler (GHC), version 6.2.

Highlights include:

  * Arrows syntax

  * New pragma: UNPACK for selectively unpacking strict constructor
fields.

  * New option -e for giving an expression to evaluate on the
command-line.

  * Portability improvements.  GHC has been ported to a few new
platforms.

  * Removal of obsolete features: _ccall_, _casm_, ``...''.

  * Many bugs fixed

See the release notes for a full list of the changes:

   http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/release-6.2.html


How to get it
~
The easy way is to go to the WWW page, which should be self-explanatory:

http://www.haskell.org/ghc/

We supply binary builds in the native package format for various
flavours of Linux and BSD, and in Windows Installer (MSI) form
for Windows folks.  Binary builds for other platforms are available
as a .tar.gz which can be installed wherever you want.  The source
distribution is also available from the same place.

Packages will appear as they are built - if the package for your
system isn't available yet, please try again later.

Background
~~
Haskell is a standard lazy functional programming language; the
current language version is Haskell 98, agreed in December 1998 and
revised December 2002.

GHC is a state-of-the-art programming suite for Haskell.  Included is
an optimising compiler generating good code for a variety of
platforms, together with an interactive system for convenient, quick
development.  The distribution includes space and time profiling
facilities, a large collection of libraries, and support for various
language extensions, including concurrency, exceptions, and foreign
language interfaces (C, whatever).  GHC is distributed under a
BSD-style open source license.

A wide variety of Haskell related resources (tutorials, libraries,
specifications, documentation, compilers, interpreters, references,
contact information, links to research groups) are available from the
Haskell home page (see below).


On-line GHC-related resources

GHC home page http://www.haskell.org/ghc/
Haskell home page http://www.haskell.org/
comp.lang.functional FAQ  http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~gmh/faq.html



System requirements
~~~
To compile programs with GHC, you need a machine with 64+MB memory, GCC
and perl. This release is known to work on the following platforms:

  * i386-unknown-{linux,*bsd,mingw32}
  * sparc-sun-solaris2
  * alpha-dec-osf3
  * powerpc-apple-darwin (MacOS/X)

Ports to the following platforms should be relatively easy (for a
wunderhacker), but haven't been tested due to lack of time/hardware:

  * hppa1.1-hp-hpux{9,10}
  * i386-unknown-solaris2
  * mips-sgi-irix{5,6}
  * {rs6000,powerpc}-ibm-aix
