bgamari - 2019-04-23

The GHC team is proud to announce the release of GHC 8.6.5. The source distribution, binary distributions, and documentation are available at Release notes are also available

This release fixes a handful of issues with 8.6.4:

  • Binary distributions once again ship with Haddock documentation including syntax highlighted source of core libraries (#16445)

  • A build system issue where use of GCC with -flto broke configure was fixed (#16440)

  • An bug affecting Windows platforms wherein XMM register values could be mangled when entering STG has been fixed (#16514)

  • Several Windows packaging issues resulting from the recent CI rework. (#16408, #16398, #16516)

Do note that due to linking issues (see #15934) profiling will be rather unreliable on Windows. This will be fixed in 8.8.1.

As always, if anything looks amiss do let us know.

Happy compiling!
