Release notes:

   - Official FreeBSD binaries are now available
   <http://docs.haskellstack.org/en/stable/install_and_upgrade/#freebsd> (
   #1253 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1253>).

Major changes:

   - Extensible custom snapshots implemented. These allow you to define
   snapshots which extend other snapshots. See #863
   <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/863>. Local file
   custom snapshots can now be safely updated without changing their name.
   Remote custom snapshots should still be treated as immutable.

Behavior changes:

   - stack path --compiler was added in the last release, to yield a path
   to the compiler. Unfortunately, --compiler is a global option that is
   useful to use with stack path. The same functionality is now
provided by stack
   path --compiler-exe. See #2123
   - For packages specified in terms of a git or hg repo, the hash used in
   the location has changed. This means that existing downloads from older
   stack versions won’t be used. This is a side-effect of the fix to #2133
   - stack upgrade no longer pays attention to local stack.yaml files, just
   the global config and CLI options. #1392
   - stack ghci now uses :add instead of :load, making it potentially work
   better with user scripts. See #1888

Other enhancements:

   - Grab Cabal files via Git SHA to avoid regressions from Hackage
   revisions #2070 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/pull/2070>
   - Custom snapshots now support ghc-options.
   - Package git repos are now re-used rather than re-cloned. See #1620
   - DESTDIR is filtered from environment when installing GHC. See #1460
   - stack haddock now supports --hadock-arguments. See #2144
   - Signing: warn if GPG_TTY is not set as per man gpg-agent

Bug fixes:

   - Now ignore project config when doing stack init or stack new. See #2110
   - Packages specified by git repo can now have submodules. See #2133
   - Fix of hackage index fetch retry. See re-opening of #1418
   - HPack now picks up changes to filesystem other than package.yaml. See
   #2051 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2051>
   - “stack solver” no longer suggests —omit-packages. See #2031
   - Fixed an issue with building Cabal’s Setup.hs. See #1356
   - Package dirtiness now pays attention to deleted files. See #1841
   - stack ghci now uses extra-lib-dirs and extra-include-dirs. See #1656
   - Relative paths outside of source dir added via qAddDependentFile are
   now checked for dirtiness. See #1982
   - Signing: always use --with-fingerprints
