-                     By default, the maximum stack size in the runtime
-                     system is now infinite. This is controlled by the
-                     <literal>+RTS -K</literal> flag, which was
-                     previously defaulted to 8MB. In general, this
-                     will allow more programs to run as they will no
-                     longer stack overflow as quickly, although they
-                     may use much more memory.

-                     Note that you will still eventually encounter a
-                     stack overflow - when the heap is completely
-                     exhausted, as stacks are serviced from the
-                     storage manager. This will cause a runtime abort
-                     after invoking
-                     <literal>StackOverflowHook</literal>.

                     The performance of <literal>StablePtr</literal>s and
                     <literal>StableName</literal>s has been improved.
