See README <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack#how-to-install> for
installation and upgrade instructions.

Note: while stack- is on Hackage, the only change is to a comment so
that stack’s haddocks build. Therefore, no new binaries were generated.
Functionally, v0.1.4.0 is identical to v0.1.4.1.

Note: we have stopped uploading new versions to the Fedora 20 repository,
since that version of Fedora has reached end of life
<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/End_of_life>. If you are using Fedora 20,
use stack upgrade or download the general Linux binary

Major changes:

   - You now have more control over how GHC versions are matched, e.g. “use
   exactly this version,” “use the specified minor version, but allow
   patches,” or “use the given minor version or any later minor in the given
   major release.” The default has switched from allowing newer later minor
   versions to a specific minor version allowing patches. For more
   information, see #736
   <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/736> and #784
   - Support added for compiling with GHCJS
   - stack can now reuse prebuilt binaries between snapshots. That means
   that, if you build package foo in LTS-3.1, that binary version can be
   reused in LTS-3.2, assuming it uses the same dependencies and flags. #878

Other enhancements:

   - Added the --docker-env argument, to set environment variables in
   Docker container.
   - Set locale environment variables to UTF-8 encoding for builds to avoid
   “commitBuffer: invalid argument” errors from GHC #793
   - Enable translitation for encoding on stdout and stderr #824
   - By default, stack upgrade automatically installs GHC as necessary #797
   - Added the ghc-options field to stack.yaml #796
   - Added the extra-path field to stack.yaml
   - Code page changes on Windows only apply to the build command (and its
   synonyms), and can be controlled via a command line flag (still defaults to
   on) #757 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/757>
   - Implicitly add packages to extra-deps when a flag for them is set #807
   - Use a precompiled Setup.hs for simple build types #801
   - Set —enable-tests and —enable-benchmarks optimistically #805
   - --only-configure option added #820
   - Check for duplicate local package names
   - Stop nagging people that call stack test #845
   - --file-watch will ignore files that are in your VCS boring/ignore
   files #703 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/703>
   - Add --numeric-version option

Bug fixes:

   - stack init --solver fails if GHC_PACKAGE_PATH is present #860
   - stack solver and stack init --solver check for test suite and
   benchmark dependencies #862
   - More intelligent logic for setting UTF-8 locale environment variables
   #856 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/856>
   - Create missing directories for stack sdist
   - Don’t ignore .cabal files with extra periods #895
   - Deprecate unused --optimizations flag
   - Truncated output on slow terminals #413
