[Haskell-cafe] Haskell Platform release schedule?

Haskell Platform 2014.2.0.0, based on GHC 7.8.3 just went alpha! I expect
the platform team to run it through its paces and hope that we'll have no
barrier to a release within two weeks at most - perhaps much sooner! If you
want to be intrepid and try it - head to to the haskell-platform mailing
list and look for announcements.​

As for versioning: The situation is that we can't (on Mac OS X at least)
install two versions of Platform at the same time with the same GHC
release. For patch release, 2014.2.0.0 and 2014.2.x.y this is fine and
probably what we want: If we update a patch release, we sort of want people
to use that, and not use the earlier vesion anymore. 2014.4.0.0 will need a
new version of GHC... or will else we'll live with the idea that it isn't
installable at the same time as 2014.2.0.0.
