| If I understand correctly, OverloadedRecordFields has not been merged
| yet. Are there any chances to merge it into GHC 7.10.1?
I'm afraid not. The situation is that Adam has a fairly complete patch for overloaded record fields, but neither he nor I are happy with it. It makes some fairly complicated and pervasive changes, and feels like a sledgehammer to crack a nut. We'd scheduled for Adam to spend a day at MSR for us to work on it together, but Adam had to cancel. We'll hopefully re-arrange.
Meanwhile it'd be motivating to know who, if anyone, is actively keen on it. Kazu is presumably one. I expect there are others, but I couldn't list them.
| > We are pleased to announce the first release candidate for GHC 7.10.1:
| > https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/7.10.1-rc1/
| > This includes the source tarball and bindists for 64bit/32bit Linux
| > and Windows. Binary builds for other platforms will be available
| > shortly. (CentOS 6.5 binaries are not available at this time like they
| > were for 7.8.x). These binaries and tarballs have an accompanying

| > We plan to make the 7.10.1 release sometime in February of 2015. We
| > expect another RC to occur during January of 2015.
| > Please test as much as possible; bugs are much cheaper if we find them
| > before the release!
