GHC 9.2.8 is now available

The GHC developers are happy to announce the availability of GHC 9.2.8. Binary
distributions, source distributions, and documentation are available at

This release is primarily a bugfix release addressing one issue
found in 9.2.7:

  • Fix a bug with RTS linker failing with ‘internal error: m32_allocator_init:
    Failed to map’ on newer Linux kernels (#19421).

We would like to thank Microsoft Azure, GitHub, IOG, the Zw3rk stake pool,
Well-Typed, Tweag I/O, Serokell, Equinix, SimSpace, Haskell Foundation, and
other anonymous contributors whose on-going financial and in-kind support has
facilitated GHC maintenance and release management over the years. Finally,
this release would not have been possible without the hundreds of open-source
contributors whose work comprise this release.

As always, do give this release a try and open a ticket if you see
anything amiss.

Happy compiling,

  • Zubin

A minor observation: the (correct) link at Download — The Glasgow Haskell Compiler is labelled 9.2.7 rather than 9.2.8.

I have updated Stack’s default setup-info dictionary for these binary distributions, and added GHC 9.2.8’s global hints to global-hints.yaml.
