Hi Ben!

Thanks for the release! Can you also upload the source tarballs?

Hello everyone,

The GHC team is proud to announce the release of GHC 8.6.5. The source
distribution, binary distributions, and documentation are available at

Release notes are also available [1].

This release fixes a handful of issues with 8.6.4:

 - Binary distributions once again ship with Haddock documentation including
   syntax highlighted source of core libraries (#16445)

 - A build system issue where use of GCC with `-flto` broke `configure`
   was fixed (#16440)

 - An bug affecting Windows platforms wherein XMM register values could be
   mangled when entering STG has been fixed (#16514)

 - Several Windows packaging issues resulting from the recent CI rework.
   (#16408, #16398, #16516)

Do note that due to linking issues (see #15934) profiling will be rather
unreliable on Windows. This will be fixed in 8.8.1.

As always, if anything looks amiss do let us know.

Happy compiling!


- Ben
