2013.4.0.0 proposal - getting to alpha

Mark Lentczner-2
Here is the current status of the 2013.4.0.0 proposal.

Outstanding Issues
We have a few decisions outstanding, and I'd like to have these decided by Nov. 23 (one week).
  • fgl - waiting to hear if Ivan will have new version ready in time.
  • aeson / dlist - there are serveral options -- I'll start a separate thread on this topic.
  • alex / happy - I'd like to hear an "okay" from the maintainers on the major version bump

Current Proposed Versions
GHC 7.6.3 -- same as last time (erroneously listed as a version bump last time)

Packages with no changes:
        fgl, haskell-src, html, HUnit,
        mtl, parsec, QuickCheck, random,
        regex-base, regex-compat, regex-posix,
        split, stm, text, transformers,
        xhtml, zlib

Packages held back:
        cgi: 3001.1.7.5 (3001.1.8.4 requires MonadCatchIO-mtl)

Packages with minor version bumps:
        HTTP: 4000.2.8 → 4000.2.9
        network: 2.4.1.2 → 2.4.2.0
        parallel: 3.2.0.3 → 3.2.0.4
        syb: 0.4.0 → 0.4.1
        unordered-containers: 0.2.3.0 → 0.2.3.3
        vector: 0.10.0.1 → 0.10.9.1?
        primitive: 0.5.0.1 → 0.5.1.0?

Packages with major version bumps:
        case-insensitive: 1.0.0.1 → 1.1.0.1
        hashable: 1.1.2.5 → 1.2.1.0

        GLUT: 2.4.0.0 → 2.5.0.1
        GLURaw: 1.3.0.0 → 1.4.0.0
        OpenGL: 2.8.0.0 → 2.9.1.0
        OpenGLRaw: 1.3.0.0 → 1.4.0.0

        alex: 3.0.5 → 3.1.0 pending okay
        happy: 1.18.10 → 1.19.0  pending okay

Cabal:
        Cabal: 1.16.0 → 1.18.1.2 consensus seems to be that this will be okay
        cabal-install: 1.16.0.2 → 1.18.0.2


Platform Packagers:
This is likely to be the last HP source release that contains all the ad hoc scripts for packaging. I canvased the group last time and as I recall, everyone said they just used the .cabal file - and no one used the scripts. I plan to replace them with a new tool built for the needs of the release, and ditch this old set of scripts. If you need 'em, speak now, or forever hold your peace!

Re: 2013.4.0.0 proposal - getting to alpha

Carter Schonwald
There's currently an issue with Alex happy when they're built with clang cpp rather Than GCC cpp which some folks are trying to hammer out I think.  I think it's a problem in Alex 3.1.2 but not 3.1.0.

Either way: assuming that bug gets sorted out, making sure Haskell platform has a fresher Alex / happy so that Haskell platform can be used to build ghc 7.8 would be a nice thing to have.

Sorry, this isn't clear to me, even after reading the bug reports! Do this mean that alex, when itself is built with clang, no longer works correctly? If that is in the ball park, I don't think it is an issue: The Mac OS X version of Haskell Platform will be built via gcc, not clang.

Will it be fine to include both versions of Cabal with the installer
(to avoid building GHC myself)? The installer can run `ghc-pkg hide
Cabal-1.16` as the final step, so the user will never even see the
extra copy of Cabal.

Is this necessary?

For me at least, "ghc-pkg list" still shows non-exposed packages (but
shades them blue in the output list; I've also had them appear in
braces before IIRC).  Using ghci or just ghc with Cabal modules will
default to the highest version unless specified otherwise.

Hurt, no; but it will make it inconsistent across platforms (as Linux
distros typically just have meta-packages for the Platform, rather
than an installer that can do this).

You mean that Linux distros will have both 1.18 and 1.16, but 1.16
won't be hidden? Will this affect anything if 1.18 will be always
chosen by default anyway?

No, but if the binary installers auto-hide 1.16, then there will be a
difference between the various platforms.

or just build ghc with the 1.18 cabal and keep it all the same :)

That's what I'd like to avoid.

Re: 2013.4.0.0 proposal - getting to alpha

Mark Lentczner-2
I don't think there is an issue with building GHC: If you build GHC from source for packaging, it will build and use the version of the Cabal package that it is shipped with. This will put Cabal-1.16 in the package database.  If you then build all the packages in the platform, that will build Cabal 1.18 and cabal-install 1.18 and add them to the package database as well.

This will then exactly match the template of the platform, I think.

Yes - it is, but it is part of the set of packages that come with GHC, hence I didn't list it by itself.
Those packages are: array, base, bytestring, Cabal, contianers, deepseq, director, filepath, haskell2010, haskell98, hpc, old-locale, old-time, pretty, process, template-haskell, time, unix, & Win32.

btw, here's also a table representation of which GHC version (from 7.0.1
up) shipped with which package versions:

Yitzchak Gale
In reply to this post by Mark Lentczner-2
To remind people of an issue I have brought up in the past:

Could this version of HP please also include an installer for Linux
that does not
include the OpenGL-related packages? This is needed to be able to install
HP on a headless Linux server. Otherwise, the only way to install HP
is to install a boatload of X server dependencies, and possibly even the
X server itself, defeating the whole purpose of having a headless server.

Thanks,
Yitz
