As a followup, a bug that may cause problems in build environments like
Travis CI has been discovered: if you have a version of `git` < 1.8.2
(released in early 2013), `stack build` will fail with an error like
'fatal: error in object: unshallow
05a8ba81a30b775e3aab8269642317345708bcfa' when it tries to update the
package index on first startup. See
https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2602 for more details.

> See https://haskellstack.org for installation and upgrade instructions.
> Release notes:
> * On many Un*x systems, Stack can now be installed with a simple
> wget -qO- https://get.haskellstack.org/ | sh
> * The fix for
> entails that stack must perform a full clone of a large Git repo of
> Hackage meta-information. The total download size is about 200 MB.
> Please be aware of this when upgrading your stack installation.
> * If you use Mac OS X, you may want to delay upgrading to macOS Sierra as
> are reports of GHC panics when building some packages (including Stack
> itself). See [#2577](
> * This version of Stack does not build on ARM or PowerPC systems (see
> [store#37](https://github.com/fpco/store/issues/37)). Please stay with
> version 1.1.2 for now on those architectures. This will be rectified
> * We are now releasing a
> [statically linked Stack binary for 64-bit Linux](
> Please try it and let us know if you run into any trouble on your
> * We are planning some changes to our Linux releases, including dropping
> Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, and Fedora package repositories and switching to
> statically linked binaries. We would value your feedback in
> Major changes:
> * Add `stack hoogle` command.
> * Support for absolute file path in `url` field of `setup-info` or
> * Add support for rendering GHCi scripts targeting different GHCi like
> Behavior changes:
> * Remove `stack ide start` and `stack ide load-targets` commands.
> * Support .buildinfo files in `stack ghci`.
> * Support -ferror-spans syntax in GHC error messages.
> * Avoid unpacking ghc to `/tmp`
> * The Linux `gmp4` GHC bindist is no longer considered a full-fledged GHC
> variant and can no longer be specified using the `ghc-variant` option,
> and instead is treated more like a slightly different platform.
> Other enhancements:
> * Use the `store` package for binary serialization of most caches.
> * Only require minor version match for Docker stack exe.
> This way, we can make patch releases for version bounds and similar
> build issues without needing to upload new binaries for Docker.
> * Stack/Nix: Passes the right ghc derivation as an argument to the
> `shell.nix` when a
> custom `shell.nix` is used
> See [#2243](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2243)
> * Stack/Nix: Sets `LD_LIBRARY_PATH` so packages using C libs for Template
> Haskell can work
> (See _e.g._ [this HaskellR issue](
> * Parse CLI arguments and configuration files into less permissive types,
> improving error messages for bad inputs.
> * Add the ability to explictly specify a gcc executable.
> * Nix: No longer uses LTS mirroring in nixpkgs. Gives to nix-shell a
> like `haskell.compiler.ghc801`
> See [#2259](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2259)
> * Perform some subprocesses during setup concurrently, slightly speeding
> up most
> commands. [#2346](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/pull/2346)
> * `stack setup` no longer unpacks to the system temp dir on posix systems.
> * `stack setup` detects libtinfo6 and ncurses6 and can download alternate
> bindists [#257](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/257)
> * `stack setup` detects Linux ARMv7 downloads appropriate GHC bindist
> * Custom `stack` binaries list dependency versions in output for
> See [#2222](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2222)
> and [#2450](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2450).
> * Use a pretty printer to output dependency resolution errors.
> * Remove the `--os` flag
> * Add 'netbase' and 'ca-certificates' as dependency for .deb packages.
> * Add `stack ide targets` command.
> * Enhance debug logging with subprocess timings.
> * Pretty-print YAML parse errors
> * Clarify confusing `stack setup` output
> * Delete `Stack.Types` multimodule to improve build times
> * Remove spurious newlines in build logs
> * Interpreter: Provide a way to hide implicit packages
> * Check executability in exec lookup
> Bug fixes:
> * Fix cabal warning about use of a deprecated cabal flag
> * Support most executable extensions on Windows
> * Detect resolver change in `stack solver`
> * Fix a bug in docker image creation where the wrong base image was
> * Ignore special entries when unpacking tarballs
> * Fixes src directory pollution of `style.css` and `highlight.js` with GHC
> haddock [#2429](https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2429)
> * Handle filepaths with spaces in `stack ghci`
> * Apply ghc-options to snapshot packages
> * stack sdist: Fix timestamp in tarball
> * Allow global Stack arguments with a script
> * Inconsistency between ToJSON and FromJSON instances of PackageLocation
> * Perform Unicode normalization on filepaths
> * Solver: always keep ghc wired-in as hard constraints
> * Support OpenBSD's tar where possible, require GNU tar for xz support
> * Fix using --coverage with Cabal-1.24
> * When marking exe installed, remove old version
> * Stop truncating all-cabal-hashes git repo
> * Handle non-ASCII filenames on Windows
> * Avoid using multiple versions of a package in script interpreter
> by passing package-id to ghc/runghc
> * Only pre-load compiler version when using nix integration
> * Solver: parse cabal errors also on Windows
> * Allow exec and ghci commands in interpreter mode.
> Scripts can now automatically open in the repl by using `exec ghci`
> instead of `runghc` in the shebang command.
> * Now consider a package to be dirty when an extra-source-file is changed.
