The GHC developers are very happy to at announce the availability of GHC    
9.2.2. Binary distributions, source distributions, and documentation are    
available at downloads.haskell.org:

This release includes many bug-fixes and other improvements to 9.2.1 including:    
 * A number of bug-fixes in the new AArch64 native code generator    
 * Fixes ensuring that the `indexWord8ArrayAs*#` family of primops is handled    
   correctly on platforms lacking support for unaligned memory accesses    
   (#21015, #20987).    
 * Improvements to the compatibility story in GHC's migration to the    
   XDG Base Directory Specification (#20684, #20669, #20660)    
 * Restored compatibility with Windows 7    
 * A new `-fcompact-unwind` flag, improving compatibility with C++ libraries on    
   Apple Darwin (#11829)    
 * Introduction of a new flag, `-fcheck-prim-bounds`, enabling runtime bounds    
   checking of array primops (#20769)    
 * Unboxing of unlifted types (#20663)    
 * Numerous improvements in compiler performance.    
 * Many, many others. See the [release notes] for a full list.    
As some of the fixed issues do affect correctness users are encouraged to    
upgrade promptly.    
Finally, thank you to Microsoft Research, GitHub, IOHK, the Zw3rk stake    
pool, Tweag I/O, Serokell, Equinix, SimSpace, and other anonymous    
contributors whose on-going financial and in-kind support has    
facilitated GHC maintenance and release management over the years.    
Moreover, this release would not have been possible without the hundreds    
of open-source contributors whose work comprise this release.    
As always, do open a [ticket][] if you see anything amiss.    
Happy compiling,    
- Ben
