There seem to be two serious known bugs in Hugs on Windows:
* The wrapper FFI doesn't work. This means that the Win32 library and the
OpenGL library probably don't work (along with any other libraries that use
wrappers). I don't know if it ever worked or not, but based on "make check"
failures, there is something wrong.
* "interact" and "getChar" don't work in CVS WinHugs, but they worked before
(right?). This is a regression.
"interact" and "getChar" are in the Haskell 98 prelude. I think that
implementing the Haskell 98 standard should always be priority #1.
When does it suit to release WinHugs? It needs a bit longer for beta testing

I think it would be confusing to users to release WinHugs seperately from
the command line Hugs. Next weekend I will verify that (Win)Hugs from CVS
builds correctly using MS Visual Studio 2003. I would recommend making a
test release soon. That way, people downloading WinHugs for their Fall
semester CS courses can test it out and report bugs.
