	* Completed the 'new-update' command (#4809), which respects nix-style
	cabal.project(.local) files and allows to update from
	multiple repositories when using overlays.

	* Completed the 'new-run' command (#4477). The functionality is the
8

	same of the old 'run' command but using nix-style builds.
	Additionally, it can run executables across packages in a project.
10
11
	Tests and benchmarks are also treated as executables, providing a
	quick way to pass them arguments.

	roll back the index to an earlier state.

	* New config file field: 'cxx-options' to specify which options to be
	passed to the compiler when compiling C++ sources specified by the
	'cxx-sources' field. (#3700)
	* New config file field: 'cxx-sources' to specify C++ files to be
	compiled separately from C source files. Useful in conjunction with the
	'cxx-options' flag to pass different compiler options to C and C++
	source files. (#3700)
	* Use [lfxtb] letters to differentiate component kind instead of
	opaque "c" in dist-dir layout.
	* 'cabal configure' now supports '--enable-static', which can be
	used to build static libaries with GHC via GHC's `-staticlib`
	flag.
	* Added support for '--enable-tests' and '--enable-benchmarks' to
	'cabal fetch' (#4948).
	* Misspelled package-names on CLI will no longer be silently
	case-corrected (#4778).
	* 'cabal new-configure' now backs up the old 'cabal.project.local'
	file if it exists (#4460).

	* On macOS, `new-build` will now place dynamic libraries into
41
42
	`store/lib` and aggressively shorten their names in an effort to
	stay within the load command size limits of macOSs mach-o linker.
43
44
45
	* 'new-build' now checks for the existence of executables for
	build-tools and build-tool-depends dependencies in the solver
	(#4884).
46
	* Fixed a spurious warning telling the user to run 'cabal update'
Mikhail Glushenkov's avatar

47
	when it wasn't necessary (#4444).
48
49
50
	* Packages installed in sandboxes via 'add-source' now have
	their timestamps updated correctly and so will not be reinstalled
	unncecessarily if the main install command fails (#1375).
51
52
53
	* Add Windows device path support for copyFile, renameFile. Allows cabal
	new-build to use temporary store path of up to 32k length
	(#3972, #4914, #4515).

56
	* When a flag value is specified multiple times on the command
	line, the last one is now preferred, so e.g. '-f+dev -f-dev' is
	now equivalent to '-f-dev' (#4452).

57
	* Removed support for building cabal-install with GHC < 7.10 (#4870).
58
59
	* New 'all-packages' section in 'cabal.project' files that applies
	options to all packages, not just those local to the project.

112
	* Added qualified constraints for setup dependencies. For example,
113
114
115
	--constraint="setup.bar == 1.0" constrains all setup dependencies on
	bar, and --constraint="foo:setup.bar == 1.0" constrains foo's setup
	dependency on bar (part of #3502).
kristenk's avatar
kristenk committed
116
117
	* Non-qualified constraints, such as --constraint="bar == 1.0", now
	only apply to top-level dependencies. They don't constrain setup or
118
119
	build-tool dependencies. The new syntax --constraint="any.bar == 1.0"
	constrains all uses of bar.
