1 Downloading Yhc
The current development version is available online. Please note that yhc is still not finished, so don't expect a full polished compiler yet!
There are two versions, the stable one and the development one. If you want to contribute to Yhc, we recommend the development one. At the moment, because development is so rapid, the stable version is usually quite out of date.

There is a mailing list for general discussion, bug reports etc.
There is also a blog, where development style posts are made. This is probably better for getting a feel of the project.
The following ports have been done, and should work straight from the darcs repo, without additional modifications. If your platform is not on this list see the Yhc porting guide, its usually about 10 minutes work!
