That's out of date - I abandoned my first effort to do ghc.net in favour
of doing a strict functional language first - F# is the result
We still frequently talk about doing either Haskell.NET or a strict
language much closer to Haskell (perhaps as a stepping stone to doing
Haskell). But neither are currently active projects.

"The GHC compiler for .NET is currently under development at
Microsoft Research, Cambridge".
Hmm. That location sounds familiar :-) Does anyone know if this is
actually going to happen? Or if there's any code anywhere, however
experimental, to try?
As a side note, the dotgnu project includes a C-to-CLR compiler,
though it has trouble passing the autoconf stuff in ghc (and I may not
have the expertise to fix it; it is crashing on the alignment tests).
I figure that if I can get portable enough C code out of ghc, and a
runtime compiled to CLR, it should be possible to compile Haskell to
.NET that way.
Anyway, it's just me off on a tangent again.
