The Current Plan for Haskell QUIC

In recent days, QUIC is hot. As the following blog posts describe, the standardization of QUIC is now in the final stage and h3-29 (HTTP/3 over QUIC of draft 29) is out there:

These blog posts motivated me to explain my plan for "Haskell QUIC" to the Haskell community. As I described in "Implementing HTTP/3 in Haskell" and "Developing QUIC Loss Detection and Congestion Control in Haskell", Haskell QUIC servers can communicate with Firefox Nightly and Chrome via HTTP/3. Also, as you can see in "IETF QUIC Interop Matrix", the interoperability has been tested with many other QUIC implementations.

After QUIC drafts will be published as a set of RFCs, I will release several Haskell libraries in the following order:

  • tls to provide the Netork.TLS.QUIC module
  • http2 to provide necessary functions for QPACK and HTTP/2 client library
  • quic to provide QUIC core features
  • http3 to provide HTTP/3 client/server libraries and QPACK
  • warp-quic to glue QUIC with WAI (Web Application Interface)
  • mighttpd2 to provide HTTP/3 server

I expect that this would happen in April 2021. For the 2nd half of Japan fiscal year of 2020 (Oct 2020 - Mar 2021), I'm planning to tackle the followings (in no particular order):

Stay tuned.
