ANNOUNCE: GHC 7.6.1 Release Candidate 1


We are pleased to announce the first release candidate for GHC 7.6.1:

    http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/7.6.1-rc1/

This includes the source tarball, installers for 32bit and 64bit
Windows, and bindists for amd64/Linux, i386/Linux, amd64/OSX and
i386/OSX.

Please test as much as possible; bugs are much cheaper if we find them
before the release!

Thanks
Ian, on behalf of the GHC team

I've tested this on Ubuntu 12.04 running on ARM (this is using ARM 
hard-float ABI) with Ubuntu's provided LLVM 3.0 and it compiles well. 
Testsuite summary is attached. We still do have some work to be done on 
ARM Linker as majority of failing tests are GHCi related.

Cheers,
Karel

I cannot test much, as long as the text package cannot be installed.
dependency integer-gmp needs to be increased and:

-bash-3.00$ cabal build
Building text-0.11.2.2...
Preprocessing library text-0.11.2.2...
[26 of 39] Compiling Data.Text.IO.Internal ( Data/Text/IO/Internal.hs, 
dist/build/Data/Text/IO/Internal.o )

Data/Text/IO/Internal.hs:35:24:
     Module `Prelude' does not export `catch'

Could somebody please apply my patch (see attached) so the FreeBSD
builder clients could produce working binaries again?

Thanks,
Gabor

Thanks!

Seems to build ok for me on Fedora 17.

Small thing: I noticed that all libraries got bumped except "pretty" -
I assume that is intentional?

I did a proper test build on Fedora 18 Alpha x86_64:

If you wish to try it on Fedora (I think it might work on Fedora 17 too)
you can download it from http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/ghc-7.6/

The srpm and buildlogs are also there.

I noticed that extensible-extensions is gone?  Will it move to Haskell Platform?

hscolour also fails to build out of the box.

Sorry I am a bit late to this: it appears to work fine on all my platforms:
el5, el6, fc16, fc17 (justhub.org/catalogue).

I haven't tested it thoroughly yet.

hscolour also fails to build out of the box.
This is the Prelude.catch issue.Regards, Malcolm

On PowerPc I get this:

    compiler/nativeGen/X86/Regs.hs:61:1:
        Warning: The import of `CmmCallConv' is redundant
               except perhaps to import instances from `CmmCallConv'
             To import instances alone, use: import CmmCallConv()

which in HEAD was fixed by the application of this patch:

    commit 2f7c578574a9d5e9b4d95847abc3d1cb1b35336d

The following patch should probably also be merged to 7.6:

    commit b4b78631890a4cd9cde1551de9a4440e7e750372
    Author: Erik de Castro Lopo <erikd <at> mega-nerd.com>
    Date:   Thu Aug 23 20:39:47 2012 +1000

        Fix for optimizer bug on linux-powerpc (#6156).

Cheers,
Erik
