A Christmas present: we’re calling this version 1.0! This is a minor
enhancement and bug fix release, but since Stackage LTS 4 is about to be
cut we thought it was time to give Stack a version number that reflects its
readiness for production use.


   - Added flag --profile flag: passed with stack build, it will enable
   profiling, and for --bench and --test it will generate a profiling
   report by passing +RTS -p to the executable(s). Great for using like stack
   build --bench --profile (remember that enabling profile will slow down
   your benchmarks by >4x). Run stack build --bench again to disable the
   profiling and get proper speeds
   - Added flag --trace flag: just like --profile, it enables profiling,
   but instead of generating a report for --bench and --test, prints out a
   stack trace on exception. Great for using like stack build --test --trace
   - Nix: all options can be overriden on command line #1483
   - Nix: build environments (shells) are now pure by default.
   - Make verbosity silent by default in script interpreter mode #1472
   - Show a message when resetting git commit fails #1453
   - Improve Unicode handling in project/package names #1337
   - Fix ambiguity between a stack command and a filename to execute
   (prefer stack subcommands) #1471
   - Support multi line interpreter directive comments #1394
   - Handle space separated pids in ghc-pkg dump (for GHC HEAD) #1509
   - Add ghci —no-package-hiding option #1517
   - stack new can download templates from URL #1466

Bug fixes:

   - Nix: stack exec options are passed properly to the stack sub process
   #1538 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1538>
   - Nix: specifying a shell-file works in any current working directory
   #1547 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1547>
   - Nix: use --resolver argument
   - Docker: fix missing image message and ‘—docker-auto-pull’
   - No HTML escaping for “stack new” template params #1475
   - Set permissions for generated .ghci script #1480
   - Restrict commands allowed in interpreter mode #1504
   - stack ghci doesn’t see preprocessed files for executables #1347
   - All test suites run even when only one is requested #1550
   - Edge cases in broken templates give odd errors #1535
