Version 7.10.1 of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) is now available as a major release for this open-source project.

For anyone programming in Haskell, the GHC 7.10.1 release is now their best release yet. GHC 7.10.1 adds new language features, experimental support for DWARF-based debugging, a completely rewritten integer-gmp, support for partial type signatures, performance improvements, and many bug-fixes. Among the language additions is support for static pointers and many prelude combinators have been generalized.

More details on the Glasgow Haskell Compiler 7.10.1 release to succeed GHC 7.8 can be found via the mailing list announcement and release notes.
