That's great! I see that the download page at http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download still links to the old tarballs for 8.0.2. Will those links be updated?

> Other than an updated mingw/bin/gcc.exe, these are identical to the
> original releases. More details about the patched toolchain can be found

> Finally, we should all thank Tamar for his work on this; without his
