After months of work, GHC 6.10.1 is finally released!

The headlines include a parallel garbage collector, extensible exceptions, haddock 2, Data Parallel Haskell as an extralib, and much more besides.

Well-Typed is pleased to have been able to play its part in making this release happen, with Ian working with the Simons at GHC HQ and many other developers across the world to bring this release together.

Meanwhile, Duncan visitied Galois to team up with Don Stewart for some extensive pre-release testing. Their experiments with building all of the packages on Hackage give us confidence that this will be a solid release.

Thanks to everyone who played a part, be it development, testing or otherwise, in this release. We couldn't have done it without your help!
