This removed part is still true - before Trac #12356 static pointers were not supported in ghci at all.

before Trac #12356 static pointers were not supported in ghci at all.

While this statement is true, I don't see how it's relevant here. Trac #12356 is no longer an issue, so I don't see why it deserves mention in the users' guide...

I'm fine with removing the link to Trac #12356, but IMO the remaining part of the paragraph should stay - it points at a limitation that is not obvious and still there.

Oh, my apologies. I completely misunderstood the scope of the fix for Trac #12356—I didn't realize that one still couldn't enter static expressions in the GHCi REPL.
