<em>GHC 6.4.2</em>. Simon Marlow
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/13576 announced]
 
the release of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler, version 6.4.2.
 
GHC is a state-of-the-art programming suite for Haskell. Included
 
is an optimising compiler generating good code for a variety of
 
platforms, together with an interactive system for convenient, quick
 
development. The distribution includes space and time profiling
 
facilities, a large collection of libraries, and support for various
 
language extensions, including concurrency, exceptions, and foreign
 
language interfaces (C, whatever). GHC is distributed under a
 
BSD-style open source license. For more information, see:

<em>Communities and Activities Report</em>. Andres Loeh
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/13578 released]
 
the call for contributions to the 10th (!) Haskell Communities and
 
Activities Report. If you are working on any project that is in some
 
way related to Haskell, write a short entry and submit it to Andres.
 
</p>
 
<p>
 
The Haskell Communities and Activities Report is a bi-annual
 
overview of the state of Haskell as well as Haskell-related projects
 
over the last, and possibly the upcoming 6 months. If you have only
 
recently been exposed to Haskell, it might be a good idea to browse the
 
[http://haskell.org/communities/11-2005/html/report.html November 2005 edition]
 
-- you will find interesting topics described as well as several
 
starting points and links that may provide answers to many questions.

[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cafe/12496 announced]
 
that Haskell.org would have a presence as an official mentoring
 
organisation for this year's Google Summer of Code. Several members
 
of the Haskell community have volunteered as mentors, and a large
 
number of proposals have been listed. If you're interested in
 
mentoring, suggesting projects, or applying as a student to spend
 
your summer writing Haskell code, check it out!
