Firstly we are anticipating branching 9.4 in about 6 weeks time
(approx start of April). Most of the major features originally
milestoned for this release have landed and the main branch is
currently in a nice state. This timeline will be solidified once the
9.2.2 release has been completed.
The major outstanding work that I am aware of is
Windows toolchain work (#21019) (Ben Gamari)
Partial Register Stall (#20405) (Andreas Klebinger)
hi-haddock (!6224) (Zubin Duggal / Matthew Pickering )
Directed Coercions (!6476) (Sam Derbyshire)
GHCJS as the highlight of the 9.6 release. This work is led by the
team at IOHK.
* The planning and progress of this process is tracked on this wiki
* We anticipate reviewing and merging patches incrementally into a
feature branch until the point where test coverage is suitable and the
patches can be merged into the main branch.
