This page describes the motivation and design for a refactoring of diagrams, to give them a semantics based on computing fixed points of functions from "context" information to raw tree of primitives together with some summary information.

Reference

See the original "manifesto" and ensuing mailing list discussion here: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.diagrams/383

See also later IRC discussion beginning here: http://ircbrowse.net/browse/diagrams?events_page=935

Most of the changes should be in the diagrams-core package, though a few things in diagrams-lib may need to change as well.

diagrams-core

I'm not sure about Style yet.

Diagrams.Core.Compile

Diagrams.Core.Types

diagrams-lib
