GHC 5.00 release update
Tue, 20 Feb 2001 10:20:37 -0800
Just to keep you up to date on where we're at. We're planning to enter
Feature Freeze for GHC 5.00 within a week (two at the most). Before
then, we're hoping to get GHCi working on Windows, and implement
do-notation on the GHCi command line. If anyone has any more
*essential* feature requests, please jump in now.
It won't be the end of the world if something doesn't get into the first
release, the main thing is to get a release out ASAP, get some feedback
and stabilise the basic functionality. I imagine it won't be too long
Feature freeze will be followed by a stabilisation period during which
we fix all outstanding bugs, do testing, performance evaluation, update
the docs, and fix any issues with distribution building. This will
probably take a couple of weeks, so we're aiming for a release around
the middle of next month.
