Name        : ghc
Product     : Fedora 22
Version     : 7.8.4
Release     : 43.fc22
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:

- ghc: aarch64 bootstrap
- ghc-srpm-macros: ghci not available on aarch64- introduce 
- ghc-rpm-macros: use explicit --enable-shared (for arm64); add ghc-obsoletes dummy subpackage for obsoleting deprecated packages: ForSyDe, parameterized-data, type-level, cgi


  [ 1 ] Bug #1195231 - ghc-7.8.4 build fails to complete on aarch64
