I found Alejandro's blog post:



> Hi cafe,
> We are happy to announce that ghc-mod v5.0.0 has been released.
> Highlights of this version is as follows:
> - ghc-mod v4.x.y is suffering from the space leak of GHC
>   7.8.x(*1). So, ghc-modi consumes huge memory. ghc-modi v5.0.0
>   consumes much less memory thanks to workaround.
> - Alejandro Serrano merges his results of Google Summer of Code. He
>   implements case splitting and sophisticated type hole handling.
>   I believe that he will write an article on his results but
>   I also updated the manual of Emacs fronted. (*2)
> - Daniel Gröber brushed up the internal code by bringing the GhcMod
>   monad. So, the API of ghc-mod drastically changed. If you are users
>   of the ghc-mod library, you should check its document.
> The main purpose of this release is to show the results of GSoC to
> everyone. This is a snapshot release and its API would change in the
> future.
> I thank two guys above since they worked hard and did good jobs.
> We hope that everyone enjoys v5.0.0.
