ANNOUNCE: GHC 7.8.4 Release Candidate 1

Austin Seipp-5
We are pleased to announce the first release candidate for GHC 7.8.4:

    https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/7.8.4-rc1/

This includes the source tarball and bindists for 64bit Linux. Binary
builds for other platforms will be available shortly. These binaries
and tarballs have an accompanying SHA256SUMS file signed by my GPG key
id (0x3B58D86F).

We plan to make the 7.8.4 release sometime in the next few weeks.

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

Just wanted to report: I ran a full Stackage build + test suite using the release candidate, and everything passed. This build consisted of ~750 packages. You can find the list of packages at:

Would it be possible to get the RC on
https://launchpad.net/~hvr/+archive/ubuntu/ghc? This way one could
easily test things on Travis CI.

I'll put a 7.8.4rc .deb up soon (probably right after the GHC 7.10
branch has been created)

Would it be possible to get a RC for the Mac up at https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/7.8.4-rc1/ ?

Thanks
George

Thomas and I have found some bugs in HPC on OSX, and we're in the midst of tracking those down, 

Those fixes should get into 7.8.4 and 7.10 both.  Currently HPC on OSX is broken in pretty fundamental ways, and thats not ok!

You mean these are regressions? If they are introduced
in one of the non-blocker fixes in 7.8.4, we can probably
just revert them. Anyway, thanks a lot for testing.

Cheers,

OK. In that case, let's remember to get *that* version of cabal into 7.8.4.


/me conditions himself with chocolate to help the remembering
