Description

(just for historical completeness)

2.10 is missing from https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/ . There is https://www.haskell.org/ghc/download_ghc_210.html , but the source link on that page is 404, and the wayback machine claims not to have ftp://ftp.dcs.gla.ac.uk/pub/ .

Release dates are missing on https://www.haskell.org/ghc/download.html (under "Older releases"). Dates are present at https://www.haskell.org/ghc/ (under "News") but only from 6.10 onwards.

I used mail archive locations mentioned at https://www.reddit.com/r/haskell/comments/6y2qbw/what_happened_to/ to find that 0.29 was announced on 29 Jul 1996. The "first full release" (0.10) was at 11 Dec 92.
