Haskell Weekly News: Issue 190

Welcome to issue 190 of the HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the Haskell community. This release covers the week of July 3 to 9, 2011.


Karel Gardas announced that he, Stephen Blackheath, and David Terei are "working together on ARM registerised port of GHC. The port is using LLVM as a code generator and is kind of working already." Testing is much appreciated!

Matthias Fischmann inveted people to the HacPhi satellite in Berlin on July 29-31. See the post for details. Admission is free, but there is limited space, so don't wait too long!
