> ## Changelog for `Cabal-18.104.22.168`
> This release of `Cabal` is a point release that allowed us to get some
> important features out into the ecosystem that just couldn't wait:
> - Include cmm-sources when linking shared objects
> - Prefer canonicalized path when guessing tools from GHC path
> - Fix `cabal test --enable-library-coverage` for modules in the
> `other-modules` field
> - set the PATH_SEPARATOR value to `;` when calling `./configure` on
> Windows (this is necessary for autoconf >=2.7)
> - Significant speedups to the solver
> ## Changelog for `cabal-install-22.214.171.124`
> This is the fourth release of the 3.0 release series for
> `cabal-install`, introducing features and quality of life improvements
> - Better support for `hsc2hs`, allowing users to pass additional options
> - Added an `--only-download` flag
> - extra-packages now works properly
> - `cabal init` UX improvements
> - GHC 9.2 support
> - Fixes to the backpack UX
> - Removing the spurious warnings for extraneous versions on internal
> - Alerts and spelling suggestions for mispelled comands
> - Massive improvements to code organization and repository health

> If you have issues, we'd love to hear about them here:
> ## Plans for 3.8
> The 3.6 release marks the first in a series where we work to modernize
> the Cabal project by means of doing away with the idiosyncratic and
> historical cruft built up, improving the contribution experience.
> Over the next 6 months, we'll be working hard to improve the state of
> the repository, including onboarding more maintainers and welcoming
> new contributors with clearer contribution requirements. To start,
> we've identified issues and new features that we aim to tackle for the
> 3.8 release spanning the following:
> - Better build info for tool creators
> - Support for stable package sets like LTS
> - Dropping build/test support for GHCs outside of the 5 year window
> - Finishing the multilib work
> - a byte-for-byte bidirectional parser
> - etc.
> You can find the full list of 3.8 project issues here:
> I'd also like to thank the many contributors who offered patches,
> tickets, and other help in the preparation of this release. We
> appreciate all of your help! And a special thank you to the Haskell
> Language Server team for working with us and the Haskell Foundation to
> help fund work needed to improve the IDE.
> Happy hacking!
