This is the thirteenth edition of our GHC activities report, which describes the work on GHC and related projects that we are doing at Well-Typed. The current edition covers roughly the months of June and July 2022. You can find the previous editions collected under the ghc-activities-report tag.
A bit of background: One aspect of our work at Well-Typed is to support GHC and the Haskell core infrastructure. Several companies, including IOHK and GitHub via the Haskell Foundation, are providing us with funding to do this work. We are also working with Hasura on better debugging tools and improvements to HLS. We are very grateful on behalf of the whole Haskell community for the support these companies provide.
If you are interested in also contributing funding to ensure we can continue or even scale up this kind of work, please get in touch.
Of course, GHC is a large community effort, and Well-Typed’s contributions are just a small part of this. This report does not aim to give an exhaustive picture of all GHC work that is ongoing, and there are many fantastic features currently being worked on that are omitted here simply because none of us are currently involved in them in any way. Furthermore, the aspects we do mention are still the work of many people. In many cases, we have just been helping with the last few steps of integration. We are immensely grateful to everyone contributing to GHC!(read more)
