The GHC team is very pleased to announce the availability of GHC
9.6.1-alpha1. As usual, binaries and source distributions are available
at downloads.haskell.org:


This is the first alpha release in the 9.6 series which will bring a
number of exciting features:

* A new Javascript code generation backend

* A new WebAssembly code generation backend,

* Significant latency improvements in the non-moving garbage collector

* Support for loading of multiple components in GHCi

* Efficient support for delimited continuations

* Improvements in error messages

* Numerous improvements in compiler-residency

Note that both the Javascript and WebAssembly backends are still in a
state of infancy and are present in this release as a technology
preview; we hope that they will mature considerably before the final
9.6.1 release.

Please give this release a try and open a [ticket] if you see anything
