Haskellistas -

The second release candidate of HP 2014.4.0.0 is now available:

   - Source tarball:
   - Mac 32-bit installer: Haskell Platform 2012.4.0.0 32bit rc2

Mac notes: This version is now digitally signed by me, and so will install
without fuss on OS X 10.8. I'll put up 64-bit version soon.
