On behalf of the Haskell Platform team, I'm happy to announce the release of

Haskell Platform 8.4.2

Now available at


This includes GHC 8.4.2, cabal-install, and stack 1.7.1, all
with substantial improvements since the last platform release.

A full list of contents is available at

Thanks to all the contributors to this release, thanks to all the
package and tool maintainers and authors, and a big thanks to the GHC
team for all their hard work.

There are (still) currently no 32 bit Windows builds available. We're
looking into the issues preventing us from building an installer for
that platform. The components all appear to work individually in such
a case, and can be installed separately by users who so desire.

A list of new GHC changes is available at:
