There is a new extension,
<link linkend="static-pointers">StaticPointers</link>,
which allows you to create pointers to expressions which
remain valid accross processes. This is useful for
referencing higher-order values in distributed
systems. The pointers are created with a new keyword
<literal>static</literal> as in
<literal>x = static ("abc" ++ "123") :: StaticPtr String</literal>.
All processes which dereference <literal>x</literal> get the
same result, that is, the body of the static form.
Added support for <link linkend="binary-literals">binary integer literals</link>
