On behalf of the Haskell Platform team, I'm happy to announce the release of

*Haskell Platform 2014.2.0.0*

GHC 7.8.3
53 packages
860+ public modules
4 tools

This release features a major upgrade to OpenGL and GLUT. In addition,
"behind the scenes", this release of the platform is produced with a new
build system, and many improvements to the installations on all three OS

P.S.: I realize this one was a long time a'comin'. I take the
responsibility for the decisions that lead up to being this late, including
deciding it was worth it to wait for GHC 7.8, and that this was the right
time to re-write the platform build system. I hope the speed that we can
now turn the platform will be evident in future releases.

Haskell Platform is created by a team of many hands. Special call out to
Randy Polen for the new Windows build, and Yitzchak Gale and Neil Mitchell
for help with the new build system. Thanks also to all the intrepid folks
that tried out the early alphas and release candidates. Additional help is
always welcome!
