I would personally say Haskell 98 is "real" Haskell (well, until Haskell
Prime comes out). It becomes difficult for tool developers to cater for
non-standard languages; Haskell is quite complicated enough without having to cater
for all the little nuances and idiomatic extensions that are constantly
added with each release of a compiler.

I believe it does work as an offline downloadable tool...
