Module documentation for 188.8.131.52
Typed Quotations now return a value of type
Code m a(GHC Proposal #195). The main motiviation is to make writing instances easier and make it easier to store
Codevalues in type-indexed maps.
Implement Overloaded Quotations (GHC Proposal #246). This patch modifies a few fundamental things in the API. All the library combinators are generalised to be in terms of a new minimal class
Quote. The types of
liftDataare modified to return
m Exprather than
Q Exp. Instances written in terms of
Qare now disallowed. The types of
unTypeQare also generalised in terms of
Quoterather than specific to
Implement Explicit specificity in type variable binders (GHC Proposal #99). In
TyVarBndris now annotated with a
flag, denoting the additional argument to its constructors

Fix Eq/Ord instances for
Bytes: we were comparing pointers while we should compare the actual bytes (#16457).
Fix Show instance for
Bytes: we were showing the pointer value while we want to show the contents (#16457).
Add support for QualifiedDo. The data constructors
MDoEgot a new
Maybe ModNameargument to describe the qualifier of do blocks.
The argument to
TExpQcan now be levity polymorphic.

Bundled with GHC 8.10.1
Add support for tuple sections. (#15843) The type signatures of
UnboxedTupEhave changed from
[Exp] -> Expto
[Maybe Exp] -> Exp. The type signatures of
unboxedTupEremain the same for backwards compatibility.

RulePnow all have a
Maybe [TyVarBndr]argument, which contains a list of quantified type variables if an explicit
forallis present, and
TySynEqnalso now use a single
Typeargument to represent the left-hand-side to avoid malformed type family equations and allow visible kind application.
tySynEqnnow all have a
Maybe [TyVarBndrQ]argument. Non-API-breaking versions of these functions can be found in
Language.Haskell.TH.Lib. The type signature of
tySynEqnhas also changed from
[TypeQ] -> TypeQ -> TySynEqnQto
(Maybe [TyVarBndrQ]) -> TypeQ -> TypeQ -> TySynEqnQ, for the same reason as in
tySynInstDalso changes from
Name -> TySynEqnQ -> DecQto
TySynEqnQ -> DecQ.
addForeignFilePathnow support assembler sources (#16180).
18.104.22.168 September 2018
Bundled with GHC 8.6.1
addForeignFilePathfunction, as well as a corresponding
qAddForeignFileclass method to
addForeignFile, which takes the contents of the file as an argument,
addForeignFilePathtakes as an argument a path pointing to a foreign file. A new
addForeignSourcefunction has also been added which takes a file’s contents as an argument.
addForeignFilefunction is now deprecated in favor of
addForeignSource, and the
Quasihas been removed entirely.
addTempFilefunction, as well as a corresponding
Quasi, which requests a temporary file of a given suffix.

Language.Haskell.TH.FamFlavour, which was deprecated in 2.11, has been removed.
Add support for overloaded labels. Introduces
labelE :: String -> ExpQ.
Language.Haskell.TH.Lib.Internalmodule, which exposes some additional functionality that is used internally in GHC’s integration with Template Haskell. This is not a part of the public API, and as such, there are no API guarantees for this module from version to version.

Bundled with GHC 8.2.1
Add support for pattern synonyms. This introduces one new constructor to
PatSynI), two new constructors to
PatSynSigD), and two new data types (
PatSynArgs), among other changes. (#8761)
Add support for unboxed sums. (#12478)
Add support for visible type applications. (#12530)
Add support for attaching deriving strategies to
Add support for
unboxedTupleDataNamenow work for unboxed 0-tuples and 1-tuples (#12977)
Language.Haskell.THnow reexports all of
Language.Haskell.TH.Lib. (#12992). This causes
Language.Haskell.THto export more types and functions that it did before:
Add support for overloaded labels.

Bundled with GHC 8.0.1
The compiler can now resolve infix operator fixities in types on its own. The
Typeis analoguous to
UInfixEfor expressions and can contain a tree of infix type applications which will be reassociated according to the fixities of the operators. The
ParensTconstructor can be used to explicitly group expressions.
