    • Don't assume existence of termios(3) constants beyond B38400

    • Don't assume existence of ctermid(3)/tcdrain(3)

    • Change drainOutput's tcdrain(3) into a safe FFI call

    • Turn build error into compile warnings for exotic struct stat configurations (GHC #8859)

    • Improve detection of fdatasync(2) (GHC #11137)

    • Drop support for Hugs

    • Deprecate function haveRtldLocal

    • Fix getGroupEntryForID/getGroupEntryForName on Solaris. Solaris uses CPP macros for required getgrgid_r and getgrnam_r functions definition so the fix is to change from C ABI calling convention to C API calling convention

    • Fix potential type-mismatch in telldir/seekdir FFI imports

      • fileSynchroniseDataOnly (aka fdatasync(2))
    • New module System.Posix.Fcntl providing

    • New functions in System.Posix.Files{,.ByteString} for operating on high resolution file timestamps:

      setFdTimesHiRes :: Fd -> POSIXTime -> POSIXTime -> IO ()
      setFileTimesHiRes :: FilePath -> POSIXTime -> POSIXTime -> IO ()
      setSymbolicLinkTimesHiRes :: FilePath -> POSIXTime -> POSIXTime -> IO ()
      touchFd :: Fd -> IO ()
      touchSymbolicLink :: FilePath -> IO ()
