    60 '''Q: Why doesn't the lastest version of Gloss build with the Haskell Platform?'''[[br]]
    61 A: Because the Haskell Platform (HP) doesn't use the latest version of GHC. The [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/gloss-examples gloss-examples] package depends on [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/repa repa] via the [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/gloss-raster gloss-raster] package. Repa itself is tightly coupled to a particular version of GHC because it depends on properties of the GHC simplifier for good performance. When the HP does not use the latest GHC we provide a specific Gloss package for it, whose API should be identical to the most recent version. For the Haskell Platform 2012.04 you should use [http://hackage.haskell.org/package/gloss-1.7.7.201204.1 gloss-1.7.7.201204.1].

    6461A0: On Windows there is a known issue with the version of freeglut that comes with the Haskell Platform 2012.2.0.0. Upgrade your Haskell Platform or install freeglut >= 2.8.0.[[br]]
