Hello everyone,

The GHC team is proud to announce the first release candidate of 8.4.2.
the source distribution, binary distributions, and documentation are
available at


This release follows so closely to 8.4.1 due to a number last-minute
bug-fixes that didn't quite make it into 8.4.1. This includes fixes for:

 * #14705, the interpreter being broken on some systems
 * #14779, where the compiler produces invalid code when used with -g
 * #14891, where a selection of GHC testsuite cases fail on OS X
 * #5129, where the simplifier would incorrectly reorder evaluation in
   under some conditions.

Since this is a relatively small bugfix release we are bypassing the
alpha releases and moving right to the release candidate stage. If all
goes well the final release will be cut next week.

Happy testing


- Ben
