     1== Source Code == 
     2 
    13The current Windows installer is based on NSIS. Source code can be found at

    9 ----------------- 
     11== Known Issues == 
    1012 
    11 [http://trac.haskell.org/haskell-platform/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&component=Windows+installer&order=priority Windows Installer Tasks] 
     13Known issues as of version 2009.2.02: 
    1214 
    13 ----------------- 
     15    * The network and time libraries shipped with GHC 6.10.3 were replaced with 
     16      versions specified in the 'haskell-platform.cabal' file (2.2.1.1 and 
     17      1.1.2.4 instead of 2.2.1 and 1.1.3, respectively). 
    1418 
    15 == Results == 
     19    * The issue of upgrading wasn't given much thought, so you're advised to 
     20      delete the previous Haskell Platform installation before using this 
     21      installer. OTOH, our behaviour is no worse than that of the existing GHC 
     22      installer. 
     23 
     24    * The installer may work with restricted user accounts, but it has not been 
     25      tested and is not officially supported. The "just unpack" option should 
     26      work, however, since it doesn't do anything fancy. 
     27 
     28    * glut32.dll is not included, though it probably should be. 
     29 
     30== Impact == 
    1631 
    1732For the 2009.2.0 release, we had 1500 (exactly) downloads of the windows installer, from May 5 - May 9.

    2139In the future, we will likely make use of Sigbjorn Finne's [http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/bamse BAMSE] work.
