See https://haskellstack.org/ for installation and upgrade instructions.

Release notes:


   We have reduced the number of platforms that we support with binary
   The reason behind this is that we've been slowed down in our release
   until now with issues trying to build binaries for less common
   platforms. In
   order to make sure we can address issues more quickly (like supporting
   GHC versions), we're limiting support from the Stack team to:
   - Linux 64-bit (static)
      - macOS
      - Windows 64-bit

   If others want to provide additional binaries, we will definitely be
   for the support. But since our CI system is currently able to produce
   three bindists only, that's what we will be providing with the next

   Since we no longer have dynamically linked Linux binaries, we are
   removing the -static suffix from the static Linux binaries. If you have
   scripts to download the latest stable Linux binary, update them to use
   linux-x86_64 instead of linux-x86_64-static (if you are already using the
   former, nothing needs to change). For this release, both are supported,
   the next release will no longer have the -static variant.

   We are also deprecating the download links at https://stackage.org/stack.
   See this page for the current installation instructions:

   These are the canonical locations to download the latest stable binaries
   from, and will continue to be supported going forward:
   - Linux 64-bit (static):
      - macOS: https://get.haskellstack.org/stable/osx-x86_64.tar.gz
      - Windows 64-bit:

   As always, binaries for specific versions are available from the Github
   releases: https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/releases.

*Changes since v2.1.3.1*

Major changes:


   setup-info-locations yaml configuration now allows overwriting the
   default locations of stack-setup-2.yaml.
   #5031 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/pull/5031>
   #2983 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2983>
   #2913 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2913>

   The setup-info configuration key now allows overwriting parts of the
   default setup-info

   The --setup-info-yaml command line flag now may be used in all stack
   commands such as stack build, and not only in stack setup

   The --setup-info-yaml may specify multiple locations for stack-setup.yaml

   The stack upload can read first reads environment Variable
   $HACKAGE_USERNAME and $HACKAGE_PASSWORD if they are missing only then
   asks for username or password

   Fully remove GHCJS support.

   Remove the freeze command. It has been replaced by lock files.

Behavior changes:


   Remove the deprecated --stack-setup-yaml command line argument in favor
   of --setup-info-yaml
   #2647 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/2647>

   We now recommend checking in generated cabal files for repos. When
   generating lock files for
   extra-deps that only include package.yaml files, a deprecation warning
   will be generated.
   Also, those packages will no longer be included in the generated lock
   See #5210 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/5210>.

Other enhancements:


   Add build-output-timestamps flag in yaml. Setting it to true
   prefixes each build log output line with a timestamp.

   Show warning about local-programs-path with spaces on windows
   when running scripts. See
   #5013 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/pull/5013>

   Add ls dependencies json which will print dependencies as JSON.
   ls dependencies --tree is now ls dependencies tree. See
   #4424 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/pull/4424>

   Remove warning for using Stack with GHC 8.8-8.10, and Cabal 3.0-3.2.

   Allow relative paths in --setup-info-yaml and tool paths
   #3394 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/3394>

   Added the --only-locals flag. See
   #5272 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/5272>

Bug fixes:


   Upgrade pantry: module mapping insertions into the database are now
   Previously, if you SIGTERMed at the wrong time while running a script,
   could end up with an inconsistent database state.

   --resolver global doesn't retrieve snapshots list from the internet
   beause doesn't need it. See #5103

   Fix using relative links in haddocks output. See
   #4971 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/4971>.

   Do not include generated cabal file information in lock files. See
   #5045 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/5045>.

   Use proper Hoogle executable path when installed automatically. See
   #4905 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/4905>

   Fix GHC version for batched package unregistration. See
   #4951 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/4951>

   Use Hoogle from the snapshot used and not the latest version. See
   #4905 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/4905>

   Resolve "'stty' is not recognized". See
   #4901 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/4901>

   Fix missing reconfigure check causing errors when a package gets
   used in multiple projects. See
   #5147 <https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/5147>
