Hello everyone,

The GHC team is proud to announce the release of GHC 8.8.3. The source
distribution, binary distributions, and documentation are available at


Release notes are also available [1].

This release fixes a handful of issues affecting 8.8.2:

 - a compiler panic (#17429) due to over-zealous eta reduction

 - a linker crash on Windows (#17575)

 - the ability to bootstrap with earlier 8.8 releases has been restored

 - the `directory` submodule has been updated, fixing #17598

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

Happy compiling!


- Ben
