 GHC 4.08.1 released (bug-fix release)

            The Glasgow Haskell Compiler -- version 4.08.1
           ================================================

We are pleased to announce an update of the Glasgow Haskell
Compiler (GHC), version 4.08.1.  The source distribution is freely
available via the World-Wide Web and through anon. FTP, under a
BSD-style license.  See below for download details.  Pre-built
packages for Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and Win32 are also available.

Haskell is "the" standard lazy functional programming language; the
current language version is Haskell 98, agreed in December 1998.

GHC is a state-of-the-art optimising compiler for Haskell, generating
good code for a variety of platforms.  The distribution includes space
and time profiling facilities, a large collection of libraries, and
support for various language extensions, including concurrency, exceptions,
and foreign language interfaces (C, C++, whatever).

A wide variety of Haskell related resources (tutorials, libraries,
specifications, documentation, compilers, interpreters, references,
contact information, links to research groups) are available from the
Haskell home page at

        http://www.*-*-*.com/

GHC's Web page lives at

+ What's new
=============

+ How to get it
================

The easy way is to go to the WWW page, which should be
self-explanatory:

Once you have the distribution, please follow the pointers in the
README file to find all of the documentation about this release.  NB:
preserve modification times when un-tarring the files (no `m' option
for tar, please)!

+ System requirements
======================

To compile programs with GHC, you need a machine with 32+MB memory, GNU C
and perl. This release is known to work on the following platforms:

  * i386-unknown-{linux,freebsd,netbsd,cygwin32,mingw32}
  * sparc-sun-solaris2
  * hppa1.1-hp-hpux{9,10}

Ports to the following platforms should be relatively easy (for a
wunderhacker), but haven't been tested due to lack of time/hardware:

  * i386-unknown-solaris2
  * alpha-dec-osf{2,3}
  * mips-sgi-irix{5,6}
  * {rs6000,powerpc}-ibm-aix

The builder's guide included in distribution gives a complete
run-down of what ports work; an on-line version can be found at
