Support Haskell GHC 7.10.2 (Current Stable Release)


#1

GHC 7.10.2 is the current stable release of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler and support should be straight forward as there is packages for Ubuntu.

@mschristiansen Does the PPA work on ubuntu 12.04 (i.e. have you tried to install this PPA in CircleCI?)

Thanks!

I run NixOS on my laptop and on CircleCI have been using what you have made available in machine configuration.

Would be easy enough to manually install the GHC package or use Stack for building my project, but seems you should have the current stable release when you officially support Haskell and would certainly make it easier for anyone with Haskell builds.

Yes for sure! I was just asking to see if you have tried to install it manually and if you run into any issues so we could address those before hand.


#5

We’re up to 8.0.2 as of our latest image update:
