GHC 7.6.1 moved to main repo

GHC 7.6.1 has now landed in the main repo. The following packages are still missing but will be added ASAP:

  • GLUT
  • anansi
  • buildwrapper
  • cblrepo
  • ghc-mod
  • pandoc
  • scion-browser

The old repo is kept around, but has been moved:

[haskell-old]
Server = http://www.kiwilight.com/haskell/old/$arch

It will stay around at least until the packages in the list above are re-added.

Repo built with GHC 7.6

As of this morning (CET) there is a repo with packages built with GHC 7.6:

[haskell-testing]
Server = http://www.kiwilight.com/haskell/testing/$arch

Currently it’s lacking slightly in available packages compared to [haskell]. The following packages are missing at the moment:

warp
wai
temporary
scion-browser
parallel-io
pandoc
cblrepo
bytestring-show
anansi
GLUT
glib
gtk
pango
ghc-mod
buildwrapper
persistent-template
haddock

The work with getting these packaged using GHC 7.6 continues, but in the meantime there’s at least a repo with 150+ packages to play with. Enjoy!
