GHC 8.10.3 released

bgamari - 2020-12-19

The GHC team is happy to announce the release of GHC 8.10.3. Source and binary distributions are available at the usual place.

GHC 8.10.3 fixes a number of issues in present in GHC 8.10.2 including:

  • Numerous stability improves on Windows

  • More robust support for architectures with weak memory ordering guarantees (e.g. modern ARM hardware).

  • GHC can now split dynamic objects to accomodate macOS’ RPATH size limitation when building large projects (#14444)

  • Several correctness bugs in the new low-latency garbage collector

Note that at the moment we still require that macOS Catalina users exempt the binary distribution from the notarization requirement by running xattr -cr . on the unpacked tree before running make install. This situation will hopefully be improved for GHC 9.0.1 with the resolution of #17418.
