What is New in Cross Compiling Haskell

August Edition

The little time I manged to carve out for this project in August has been spent on building a new llvm backend. Or more precisely to start integrating the llvm bitcode backend I worked on last year into ghc.

The current status of the -fllvmng backend is that it can compile GHC, but fails to validate. I believe most of these validation failures should be fairly trivial so solve. Unless we run into interesting bugs again.

I dont believe I will mange to get much done in terms of actual code this week, as I’m attending ICFP in Oxford. If you are around, please say hi!

I hope you are excited for the posts to come! As always you can follow us here on medium, on github, or on twitter.
