We’re pleased to announce the third release of the Haskell Platform: a single, standard Haskell distribution for everyone.
The platform is a comprehensive suite of compilers, libraries and tools for Haskell, providing a rich, useful environment, that is identical on every system. It is Haskell with batteries included.

As mentioned last week, we have some big plans ahead, primarily working out how to regularly add more libraries from Hackage. If you have thoughts on this, let us know.
