See haskellstack.org for installation and upgrade instructions.

Release notes:

   - Added Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (xenial) Apt repo.
   - No longer uploading new versions to Fedora 21 repo.

Behavior changes:

   - Snapshot packages are no longer built with executable profiling. See
   #1179 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1179>.
   - stack init now ignores symlinks when searching for cabal files. It
   also now ignores any directory that begins with . (as well as dist dirs)
   - before it would only ignore .git, .stack-work, and dist.
   - The stack executable is no longer built with -rtsopts. Before, when
   -rtsopts was enabled, stack would process +RTS options even when
   intended for some other program, such as when used with stack exec --
   prog +RTS. See #2022
   - The stack path --ghc-paths option is deprecated and renamed to
   --programs. --compiler is added, which points directly at the compiler
   used in the current project. --compiler-bin points to the compiler’s bin
   - For consistency with the $STACK_ROOT environment variable, the stack
   path --global-stack-root flag and the global-stack-root field in the
   output of stack path are being deprecated and replaced with the
   stack-root flag and output field. Additionally, the stack root can now
   be specified via the --stack-root command-line flag. See #1148
   - stack sig GPG-related sub-commands were removed (folded into upload
   and sdist)
   - GPG signing of packages while uploading to Hackage is now the default.
   Use upload --no-signature if you would rather not contribute your
   package signature. If you don’t yet have a GPG keyset, read this blog
   post on GPG keys
   <https://fpcomplete.com/blog/2016/04/stack-security-gnupg-keys> We can
   add a stack.yaml config setting to disable signing if some people desire
   it. We hope that people will sign. Later we will be adding GPG signature
   verification options.
   - stack build pkg-1.2.3 will now build even if the snapshot has a
   different package version - it is treated as an extra-dep. stack build
   local-pkg-1.2.3 is an error even if the version number matches the local
   package #2028 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2028>.
   - Having a nix: section no longer implies enabling nix build. This
   allows the user to globally configure whether nix is used (unless the
   project overrides the default explicitly). See #1924
   - Remove deprecated valid-wanted field.
   - Docker: mount home directory in container #1949
   - Deprecate --local-bin-path instead --local-bin.
   - stack image: allow absolute source paths for add.

Other enhancements:

   - stack haddock --open [PACKAGE] opens the local haddocks in the browser.
   - Fix too much rebuilding when enabling/disabling profiling flags.
   - stack build pkg-1.0 will now build pkg-1.0 even if the snapshot
   specifies a different version (it introduces a temporary extra-dep)
   - Experimental support for --split-objs added #1284
   - git packages with submodules are supported by passing the --recursive
   flag to git clone.
   - When using hpack <https://github.com/sol/hpack>, only regenerate cabal
   files when hpack files change.
   - hpack files can now be used in templates
   - stack ghci now runs ghci as a separate process #1306
   - Retry when downloading snapshots and package indices
   - Many build options are configurable now in stack.yaml:

     library-profiling: true
     executable-profiling: true
     haddock: true
     haddock-deps: true
     copy-bins: true
     prefetch: true
     force-dirty: true
     keep-going: true
     test: true
       rerun-tests: true
       additional-args: ['-fprof']
       coverage: true
       no-run-tests: true
     bench: true
       benchmark-arguments: -O2
       no-run-benchmarks: true
     reconfigure: true
     cabal-verbose: true

   - A number of URLs are now configurable, useful for firewalls. See #1794
   - Suggest causes when executables are missing.
   - Allow --omit-packages even without --solver.
   - Improve the generated stack.yaml.
   - Improve ghci results after :load Main module collision with main file
   - Only load the hackage index if necessary #1883
   <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1883>, #1892
   - init: allow local packages to be deps of deps #1965
   - Always use full fingerprints from GPG #1952
   - Default to using gpg2 and fall back to gpg #1976
   - Add a flag for —verbosity silent.
   - Add haddock --open flag #1396

Bug fixes:

   - Package tarballs would fail to unpack. #1884
   - Fixed errant warnings about missing modules, after deleted and removed
   from cabal file #921
   <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/921> #1805
   - Now considers a package to dirty when the hpack file is changed #1819
   - Nix: cancelling a stack build now exits properly rather than dropping
   into a nix-shell #1778
   - allow-newer: true now causes --exact-configuration to be passed to
   Cabal. See #1579 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1579>
   - stack solver no longer fails with InvalidRelFile for relative package
   paths including ... See #1954
   - Ignore emacs lock files when finding .cabal #1897
   - Use lenient UTF-8 decode for build output #1945
   - Clear index cache whenever index updated #1962
   - Fix: Building a container image drops a .stack-work dir in the current
   working (sub)directory #1975
   - Fix: Rebuilding when disabling profiling #2023
