GHC 7.8 (GHCJS)

Hi, on the GHCJS website () I found an information:

If you are from the future, you have GHC 7.8 or higher installed, and Cabal 1.18, run the following:
$ cabal install ghcjs
$ ghcjs-boot --auto

Is it possible currently to get somehow GHC 7.8 or this information means that AFTER release of 7.8 this functionality will be available?

Re: GHC 7.8 (GHCJS)

That's just a joke, because GHCJS is a bit tricky to install, but it will be easier after 7.8 is released and they have merged our patches (unless you really are from the future, then you can just install it, but please send me the code of all the bugs i'll have fixed by then).

The easiest way to get up and running is a virtual machine with GHC HEAD, see this for some introduction and installation instructions:

For working on a VM, the vado tool might be useful:
