Hello all,

I'm going to do the 7.8.3 release very soon. Now is the time to speak
up if something should go in.

Here's the take away from this: I *am not* going to fix any other bugs
for 7.8.3 or close any other tickets than the following:

 - #9155 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/9155
 - #7241 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/7241
 - #8683 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/8683
 - #8935 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/8935
 - #9080 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/9080

The first one is a bug fix from Simon for the code generator. The
remaining ones are patches I intend to land today.

So here's the deal: if you don't speak up now, you'll have to wait
until 7.8.4 (sometime in the late summer I imagine) to get your word
in. Is there anything anyone absolutely must have that I've missed?

Full details on what was fixed are on this page - the 'infoneeded' and
'new' tickets will be punted to a new milestone shortly. All 'closed'
tickets are merged and in the 7.8 branch already:
