Glasgow Haskell Compiler successfully ported to OpenSPARC

Ben Lippmeier has been working on the native port of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) to SPARC. The port was completed a few months back, and since then he's been using an UltraSPARC T2 system to look at thread activity and scaling as the number of threads is increased. The full details of the project are on his GHC on SPARC blog. The latest SPARC/Solaris binary can be downloaded here, although the full set of changes probably won't be available for a couple of months.

There's an opportunity to work on improving the performance of Haskell on SPARC. The project is also going to explore using multiple threads to improve performance. Much more information is contained in the announcement.
