I am not aware of any concrete plans for a 7.10.3 release. You should
upgrade to 7.10.2.

Currently there are no plans to do a 7.10.3 release. 7.10.2 does has a
few issues, but none of them are critical regressions but none of them
appear critical enough to burn maintenance time on.

Of course, we are willing to reevaluate in the event that new issues
arise. What problems with 7.10.2 are you struggling with?

Cheers,

No worries. Please excuse the grammar in the reply; reading over it now
it's quite embarrassing. Clearly needed a read-through before sending.

Ahhh, the simplifier issue. I suppose that hermit is probably being
adversely affected by the fact that 7.10.2 attempts to simplify rules'
left-hand sides. This is definitely one of the more significant problems
with the 7.10.2 release. I was hoping that `text` would be the only
major package affected by this bug, but it seems this isn't the case.
I'll mention this in the next GHC call and see what the others think.

Hi Ben,

Thanks for your reply.

My problem is the project I’m currently working on is dependent upon HERMIT, 
which doesn’t play well with 7.10.2, as per:

https://github.com/ku-fpg/hermit/issues/144#issuecomment-128762767

(The nature of that comment caused me to think that 7.10.3 was in play.)

Thanks,
