Announce: Haskell Platform 8.2.1

Gershom Bazerman
On behalf of the Haskell Platform team, I'm happy to announce the release of

Haskell Platform 8.2.1

Now available at

https://www.haskell.org/platform/

This includes GHC 8.2.1, cabal-install 2.0.0.0, and stack 1.5.1, all
with many bugfixes and improvements since the last platform release.

A full list of contents is available at
https://www.haskell.org/platform/contents.html

Thanks to all the contributors to this release, thanks to all the
package and tool maintainers and authors, and a big thanks to the GHC
team for all their hard work.

Due to GHC bug #14081 (https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/14081),
we do not have Win32 builds in this release. We anticipate resuming
support for Win32 once the current issues with GHC on Win32 are fixed
in the next release.

A list of new GHC changes is available at:
https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/blog/ghc-8.2.11-released

A list of cabal changes is available at:
https://hackage.haskell.org/package/cabal-install-2.0.0.0/changelog

(note the support for the Backpack module system, as described at:
https://github.com/ezyang/ghc-proposals/blob/backpack/proposals/0000-backpack.rst)

The cabal documentation page is at:
https://cabal.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

A list of stack changes is at:
https://docs.haskellstack.org/en/stable/ChangeLog/

The stack documentation page is at:
https://docs.haskellstack.org/en/stable/README/

Happy Haskell Hacking all,
Gershom

(Note -- one feature we still have not implemented yet for the platform but
would like to is a generic linux installer that allows one to set a
custom location and does not require root. Anyone who would like to
volunteer to help with this, please get in touch!)

Putting it at the top so people do not miss it. Wish it goes like a dream!
