Fedora Update Notification
2011-10-24 22:38:29

Name        : ghc
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 7.0.2
Release     : 16.8.fc15
URL         : http://haskell.org/ghc/
Summary     : Glasgow Haskell Compiler
Description :
GHC is a state-of-the-art, open source, compiler and interactive environment
for the functional language Haskell. Highlights:

- GHC supports the entire Haskell 2010 language plus various extensions.
- GHC has particularly good support for concurrency and parallelism,
  including support for Software Transactional Memory (STM).
- GHC generates fast code, particularly for concurrent programs
  (check the results on the "Computer Language Benchmarks Game").
- GHC works on several platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux,
  most varieties of Unix, and several different processor architectures.
- GHC has extensive optimisation capabilities,
  including inter-module optimisation.
- GHC compiles Haskell code either directly to native code or using LLVM
  as a back-end. GHC can also generate C code as an intermediate target for
  porting to new platforms. The interactive environment compiles Haskell to
  bytecode, and supports execution of mixed bytecode/compiled programs.
- Profiling is supported, both by time/allocation and heap profiling.
- GHC comes with core libraries, and thousands more are available on Hackage.

Update Information:

- Base package now installs all of ghc, including new ghc-compiler and ghc-libraries subpackages
- Add HaskellReport license tag to subpackages with Haskell Report code
- Support armv5tel arch (Henrik Nordström)
- Dependency autogeneration for bootstrap builds


* Sat Nov 12 2011 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 7.0.2-16.8

* Fri Nov 11 2011 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 7.0.2-16.7
- move ghc-doc and ghc-libs obsoletes
- the post and postun scripts are now for the compiler subpackage

  which contain some code from the Haskell Reports
* Mon Oct 24 2011 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 7.0.2-16.6
- setup ghc-deps.sh after ghc_version_override for bootstrapping
- add armv5tel (ported by Henrik Nordström)

- port to armv7hl by Henrik Nordström (#741725)
- setup dependency generation with ghc-deps.sh since it was moved to
  ghc_lib_install in ghc-rpm-macros
- BR same ghc version unless ghc_bootstrapping defined
- add libffi_archs

  (otherwise ccache tends to get hardcoded as gcc, which not in koji)
- posttrans scriplet for ghc_pkg_recache is redundant
- make devel and prof meta packages require libs with release
- make ghc-*-devel subpackages require ghc with release
* Sun May  1 2011 Jiri Skala <jskala at redhat.com> - 7.0.2-16.2
