Hello everyone,

The GHC team is proud to announce the release of GHC 8.6.5. The source
distribution, binary distributions, and documentation are available at


Release notes are also available [1].

This release fixes a handful of issues with 8.6.4:

 - Binary distributions once again ship with Haddock documentation including
   syntax highlighted source of core libraries (#16445)

 - A build system issue where use of GCC with `-flto` broke `configure`
   was fixed (#16440)

 - An bug affecting Windows platforms wherein XMM register values could be
   mangled when entering STG has been fixed (#16514)

 - Several Windows packaging issues resulting from the recent CI rework.
   (#16408, #16398, #16516)

Do note that due to linking issues (see #15934) profiling will be rather
unreliable on Windows. This will be fixed in 8.8.1.

As always, if anything looks amiss do let us know.

Happy compiling!


- Ben
