* Added the options `-ffi' and `-fffi', which switch on FFI support (`-fglasgow-exts' implies `-fffi'). NB: Strictly speaking `-fffi' is the correct name; however, `-ffi' is supported as an alternative spelling. * `-fglasgow-exts' no longer enables the `with' keyword for implicit parameters. To use `with' as a keyword, the additional option `-fwith' has to be supplied. (Note that SimonM recently enabled the use of `let' instead of `with'.) NB: This might prompt some makefile tweaks in libraries or regression tests. * Renamed `Foreign.Marshal.Utils.withObject' to `Foreign.Marshal.Utils.with' as required by the FFI Addendum. (The old name is still available, but marked as deprecated.) * Added `realloc' to `Foreign.Marshal.Alloc' (tracking RC4 of the FFI Addendum). Docu ~~~~ * Added `-ffi', `-fffi', and `-fwith' to the flag reference and the section describing options for Glasgow extensions * Removed most of the FFI section in the User's Guide in favour of a reference to the Addendum plus a brief description of additional features supported by GHC. NB: The old material is still available at fptools/docs/, I merely removed the reference in the User's Guide.
