It seems that the liftIO function from MonadIO can be generalized to access whatever the base of a transformer stack happens to be. So there is no need for a liftSTM, liftST, etc.
View New monads/MonadBase.
This is by Iavor S. Diatchki and can be found at http://www.cse.ogi.edu/~diatchki/monadLib/
It is a new version of the mtl package with transformers: ReaderT WriterT StateT ExceptT SearchT ContT
It also defines BaseM which is like MonadBase above.
A simple monad transformer to allow computations in the transformed monad to generate random values.
View New monads/MonadRandom.
A refinement of MonadRandom to integrate RandomGen's split function.

Here is a simple monad/monad transformer for computations which consume values from a (finite or infinite) supply. Note that due to pattern matching, running out of supply in a non-MonadZero monad will cause an error.
View New monads/MonadSupply.
Here is a modified state monad transformer for keeping track of undo/redo states automatically.
View New monads/MonadUndo.
This is a simple (trivial) monad transformer for supplying unique integer values to an algorithm.
View New monads/MonadUnique.
Here's an extension of the ST monad in which the references are ordered and showable (they list their creation index).
View New monads/MonadSTO.
Here is an extension of STM to easy interaction with IO after committing or retrying. Inspired by Simon P-J.
View New monads/MonadAdvSTM.
A monad transformer which combines State, Reader, and Error functionality to give the effect of a StateT monad which checks clock-time and stops the current computation if a period is exceeded.
darcs get http://www.mapcar.org/haskell/TimedStateT/
Represents the class of monads such that
l == (msplit l >>= \(x,xs) -> return x `mplus` xs)
In English, msplit is a counterpart to "mplus".
Using this, you can redefine many of the functions which previously depended on lists: foldM, scanM, inits, tails, and some derived functions.
Note: A more general form of this monad, Data.Foldable, is now part of the standard libraries.
View New monads/MonadSplit.
Lazy and Strict variants
This section contains monads that have interesting String or Lazy properties.
This came up on the mailing list: Why is WriterT never lazy? The answer is it does not use lazy patterns with "~". So here is a more useful New monads/LazyWriterT that add two "~" to the definition of (>>=) and renames WriterT to LazyWriterT.
This was contribute by John Meacham on on the haskell-cafe mailing list. New monads/UnboxedRWS is an strict variant of RWS.
