Hooray! The Glasgow Haskell Compiler, version 6.6, has been released. Among the many new features in GHC 6.6 are a few that I’m looking forward to using right away:

• SMP support to keep dual-core processors happy.
• Bang patterns to strictify function arguments automatically, saving many calls to seq.
• GADTs can now use record syntax.
• GHCi now allows tab completion of in-scope names and modules on platforms that use readline (i.e. not Windows).

Congratulations and a big thank-you to the GHC team!
