We are pleased to announce the Release Candidate phase for GHC 6.6.1.

    Snapshots beginning with 6.6.20070409 are release candidates for 6.6.1

You can download snapshots from here:

Right now we have the source bundles:

Only the first of these is necessary. The "extralibs" package contains
various extra packages that we normally supply with GHC - unpack the
extralibs tarball on top of the source tree to add them, and they will
be included in the build automatically.

There are also currently binary distributions for x86_64/Linux and
i386/Linux. More may appear later.

The Windows (mingw) binary distributions are currently broken, but we
hope to have this resolved soon.

Please test as much as possible; bugs are much cheaper if we find them
before the release!

We hope to release in a couple of weeks, but of course that may slip if
problems are uncovered.

Ian, on behalf of the GHC team
