    Release 0.0.7
    
    This release introduces a new way of installing ghcup (and GHC and cabal in the process)
    with the infamous `curl .. | sh` pattern. See #36 for discussion. This
    is completely optional.
    
    Features:
    
    - Add a bootstrap-haskell script, fixes #36
    - Allow to specify tags for `ghcup install`, `ghcup install-cabal` and `ghcup set`
    - `ghcup list` also shows tags
    - support installing on macOS aka Darwin
    - Improve detection logic for CentOS/Alpine/AIX/FreeBSD
    - Introduce a GHCUP_INSTALL_BASE_PREFIX env variable to control where `.ghcup` directory will be created
    - Add rudimentary support for Amazon Linux
    
    Bugfixes:
    
    - Create missing haddock -> haddock-ghc symlink
    - Emit distro-alias inferred in `debug-info` output
    - Tweak exit code for `ghcup install` (If a GHC is already installed, we shouldn't treat it as an error)
    
    Cleanups:
    
    - Simplify mkdir calls
    - Documentation improvements
    - Error handling improvements
    
    API changes:
    
    - `self-update` was renamed to `upgrade`
