The Haskell stack has been updated

This release updates the Haskell programming language stack:

  • The Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) updates from version 8.4 to 8.6.

  • The Stackage platform updates from version 12 LTS to 13 LTS.

Additionally, Haskell documentation and profiling libraries are now provided by separate packages. As a result, you can now install a smaller Haskell development environment.

For more information about GHC 8.6, see the release notes: https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/8.6.5/docs/html/users_guide/8.6.1-notes.html.
