The GHC developers are very pleased to announce the release of GHC 9.10.1.
Binary distributions, source distributions, and documentation are available at
[downloads.haskell.org] and shortly via [GHCup].

GHC 9.10 brings a number of new features and improvements, including:

 * The introduction of the `GHC2024` language edition, building upon
   `GHC2021` with the addition of a number of widely-used extensions.

 * Partial implementation of the [GHC Proposal #281], allowing visible
   quantification to be used in the types of terms.

 * [Extension] of LinearTypes to allow linear `let` and `where`

 * The implementation of the [exception backtrace proposal],
   allowing the annotation of exceptions with backtraces, as well
   as other user-defined context

 * Further improvements in the info table provenance mechanism, reducing
   code size to allow IPE information to be enabled more widely

 * Javascript FFI support in the WebAssembly backend

 * Improvements in the fragmentation characteristics of the low-latency
   non-moving garbage collector.

 * ... and many more

A full accounting of changes can be found in the [release notes].
As always, GHC's release status, including planned future releases, can
be found on the [GHC Wiki].

We would like to thank GitHub, IOG, the Zw3rk stake pool,
Well-Typed, Tweag I/O, Serokell, Equinix, SimSpace, the Haskell
Foundation, and other anonymous contributors whose on-going financial
and in-kind support has facilitated GHC maintenance and release
management over the years. Finally, this release would not have been
possible without the hundreds of open-source contributors whose work
comprise this release.

As always, do give this release a try and open a [ticket] if you see
anything amiss.
