An experimental Windows GHC 8.10.5 64-bit Visual C/Native Windows SDK 
binary compatible distribution is released.


Supports Haskell DLLs. Both static and dynamic compilers are shipped.

Uses LLVM tools exclusively, hence linking is blazing fast compared to 
the stock distro.

Is position-independent (can be loaded to any address, not only the 
lower 2GBs) and generates position-independent code.

Based on and targets Microsoft Visual C runtime and native Windows SDK.

The "full" variant of distro contains 438 extra prebuilt packages and a 
set utilities,
including not only the mandatory cabal, stack, Happy and Alex, but also 
linters, formatters, preprocessors,
and even beasts like pandoc, haskell-language-server and even Agda compiler.
