I'm pleased to announce the release of ghc-mod 184.108.40.206!
* Support for GHC 8.0 and Cabal 1.24
Nothing too spectacular to report here, just regular maintenance work.
* Type Contexts fixed
Thanks to @Lierdakil `ghc-mod type` now finally displays type (class)
constraints in most cases. This has been on the TODO list for a very long
while now, going back to at least GHC 7.8. GHC's API just doesn't have a
nice, simple, way for doing this and we had to resort to manually walking
the typechecked AST while collecting constraints in various places.
* Various bug fixes and smaller improvements
From the change log:
* Merge #737, `map-file` caching issues
* Merge #767, Add `browse` option to show symbol "parents"
* Fix #438, Case splitting not working
* Fix #790, Don't try to use 'cabal' or 'stack' when it's not installed
What is ghc-mod?
ghc-mod is both a back-end program for enhancing editors and other development
environments with support for Haskell as well as a library for abstracting the
black magic incantations required to use the GHC API in various environments,
especially Cabal and Stack projects. The library is used by projects like
HaRe, and haskell-ide-engine
- Emacs (native):

Frequently reported issues
ghc-mod once compiled is bound to one version of GHC since we link against the
GHC API library. This used to not be a very big problem but since Stack made it
exceedingly easy for users to use more than one version of GHC without even
knowing the number of problems in this area has exploded. We are tracing the
issue in the following issue: https://github.com/DanielG/ghc-mod/issues/615
(Support switching GHC versions without recompiling ghc-mod)
