* Added `Eta` to `CompilerFlavor` and to known compilers.
* `cabal haddock` now generates per-component documentation
([#5226](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/5226)).
* Allow `**` wildcards in `data-files`, `extra-source-files` and
`extra-doc-files`. These allow a limited form of recursive
matching, and require `cabal-version: 2.4`.
Wildcard syntax errors (misplaced `*`, etc) are also now detected
by `cabal check`.
`FileGlob`, `parseFileGlob`, `matchFileGlob` and `matchDirFileGlob`
have beem moved from `Distribution.Simple.Utils` to a new file,
`Distribution.Simple.Glob` and `FileGlob` has been made abstract.

* Wildcard improvements:
* Allow `**` wildcards in `data-files`, `extra-source-files` and
`extra-doc-files`. These allow a limited form of recursive
matching, and require `cabal-version: 2.4`.
([#5284](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/5284),
[#3178](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/3178), et al.)
* With `cabal-version: 2.4`, when matching a wildcard, the
requirement for the full extension to match exactly has been
loosened. Instead, if the wildcard's extension is a suffix of the
file's extension, the file will be selected. For example,
previously `foo.en.html` would not match `*.html`, and
`foo.solaris.tar.gz` would not match `*.tar.gz`, but now both
do. This may lead to files unexpectedly being included by `sdist`;
please audit your package descriptions if you rely on this
behaviour to keep sensitive data out of distributed packages
([#5372](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/pull/5372),
[#784](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/784),
[#5057](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/5057)).
* Wildcard syntax errors (misplaced `*`, etc), wildcards that
refer to missing directoies, and wildcards that do not match
anything are now all detected by `cabal check`.
* Wildcard ('globbing') functions have been moved from
`Distribution.Simple.Utils` to `Distribution.Simple.Glob` and
have been refactored.
* Fixed `cxx-options` and `cxx-sources` buildinfo fields for
separate compilation of C++ source files to correctly build and link
non-library components ([#5309](https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/5309)).
