Hi *,

Just a short update on the status of the 1.24 release. Since the GHC 8
release has been delayed somewhat, I've postponed creating the 1.24
branch. Will do that either before GHC 8 RC3 release or GHC 8 final
(if there won't be a GHC 8 RC3).

Here's the list of remaining unmerged PRs that I plan to merge before
creating the branch:

Cabal: - Add support for platform
libraries (needs rebasing) - Implement bash (with globstar)
style globbing (requires some work on my part)

cabal-install: - Fix space leak in solver
backjumping - Fix space leaks in dependency
solver logging. - Add the gen-bounds command - init-config - status command

Also, must be resolved
before the release.
