It's been just over two weeks since the Haskell Platform 2010.2.0.0 was released. The Windows and Mac installers were hosted on our new server, destined to replace haskell.org. As the server isn't yet doing anything else, this gives us some clear data for the traffic associated with the release.

Shortly after the release, the daily bandwidth graph peaked just short of 3MB/s:

Over 24 hours the rate dropped steadily, and then levelled off at 200-300kB/s:

and it isn't showing any signs of falling off yet:

So far, there have been 9613 downloads of the Windows installer, from 3947 unique IPs, and 1068 downloads of the Mac installer, from 959 unique IPs.

You can see how this compares to the previous series of releases here.
