As many people know, the recent Windows 10 Creators Update broke the
latest GHC 8.0.2 release. [1] We're happy to announce that there are
now new 8.0.2-a builds on the Haskell Platform website that include
the patch prepared by GHC HQ, and the hashes have been updated
appropriately as well:


Note that this is not a new HP release in any official sense, nor are
these new HP builds. These are the existing installers with the
replacement of one file. Accordingly, they have new file names and
hashes. However, all else remains the same. Similarly, no builds for
other platforms have been updated. If you are not using Windows 10,
this doesn't affect you in any way. And if you are, you probably
already ran into this.

Apologies for about a week of tardiness in getting this out, which is
entirely due to my frazzledness.

Happy Haskell Hacking all,
