Fedora Update Notification
2014-12-27 08:07:20

Name        : ghc
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 7.6.3
Release     : 26.3.fc21
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 on armv7 now uses llvm34 since llvm was updated to 3.5 which does not work currently with ARM ghc; use rpm internal dependency generator with ghc_*.attr on F21+; fix bash-ism in ghc-doc-index; setup LDFLAGS. This build is a full backport of ghc-7.6.3-28.fc22.

* Wed Dec 24 2014 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 7.6.3-26.3
- remove the build hack to switch from llvm to llvm34 (#1161049)
* Mon Dec 22 2014 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 7.6.3-26.2
- use llvm34 instead of llvm-3.5 for arm (#1161049)
* Tue Nov 18 2014 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 7.6.3-26.1
- use rpm internal dependency generator with ghc.attr on F21+
- fix bash-ism in ghc-doc-index (#1146733)
- do "quick" build when bootstrapping
- setup LDFLAGS

  [ 1 ] Bug #1161049 - llvm-3.5 breaks ghc on ARMv7
