  • Last updated: 2012-01-10

Detailed Description

A new stable Haskell Platform release was made in December supporting ghc-7.0.4 and updating 10 platform libraries. This affects about 60 packages in Fedora which need to be rebuilt. The Haskell Platform is the official recommended set of basic libraries and tools for Haskell development.

Benefit to Fedora

Makes sure that Fedora is up-to-date with Haskell library versions so that users developing with Haskell on Fedora will have the latest stable Haskell Platform available to them.

Scope

  • Update haskell-platform library packages to the latest recommended versions. [done]
  • Rebuild reverse-dependent packages in rawhide. [done]
  • Updating other packages outside platform to latest versions. [done]
  • Testing of packages in Rawhide, Alpha, and Beta.

How To Test

  • yum install haskell-platform
  • yum install @haskell
  • yum install xmonad
  • yum install ghc-*-devel
  • Testing rebuilding of some packages.

User Experience

Fedora users will have the latest version of the Haskell Platform available to them. They will find it easier to build the latest packages from Hackage with latest platform libraries available to them.

Dependencies

None.

Contingency Plan

None - at this time no problems expected with this stable update.
