<p><em>monadLib 2.0</em>. Iavor Diatchki
 
 
</div>
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/13460 announced]
 
the release of monadLib 2.0 -- library of
 
monad transformers for Haskell. 'monadLib' is a descendent of
 
'mtl', the monad template library that is distributed with most
 
Haskell implementations. Check out the
 
[http://www.csee.ogi.edu/~diatchki/monadLib library] web page.

<p><em>Text.Regex.Lazy (0.33)</em>. Chris Kuklewicz
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.libraries/4464 announced]
 
the release of [http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazy-regex Text.Regex.Lazy].
 
This is an alternative to Text.Regex along with some enhancements.
 
GHC's Text.Regex marshals the data back and forth to C arrays, to call
 
libc. This is far too slow (and strict). This module understands
 
regular expression Strings via a Parsec parser and creates an internal data
 
structure (Text.Regex.Lazy.Pattern). This is then transformed into a
 
Parsec parser to process the input String, or into a DFA table for matching
 
against the input String or FastPackedString. The input string is
 
consumed lazily, so it may be an arbitrarily long or infinite source.

<p><em>HDBC 0.99.2</em>. John Goerzen
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/13504 released]
 
HDBC 0.99.2, along with 0.99.2 versions of all database
 
backends. John says "If things go well, after a few weeks of
 
testing, this version will become HDBC 1.0.0".
 
[http://quux.org/devel/hdbc HDBC] is a
 
multi-database interface system for Haskell.

<p><em>Planet Haskell</em>. Isaac Jones
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cafe/12033 asked]
 
if someone could volunteer to set up "Planet
 
Haskell", an RSS feed aggregator in the style of Planet Debian, Planet
 
Gnome or Planet Perl. Happily, Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho stepped up, and now
 
Planet Haskell is live at [http://planet.haskell.org http://planet.haskell.org].
 
Antti-Juhani asks that any Haskell
 
people with blogs submit their feed urls to him, so check it out!

<p><em>Haskell on Gentoo Linux</em> Duncan Coutts
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.glasgow.user/9557 writes]
 
that GHC 6.4.1 has been marked stable on x86,
 
amd64, sparc and ppc, for
 
[http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=ghc Gentoo Linux].
 
(We also support ppc64, alpha and hppa.)
 
Gentoo also has a collection of over 30 Haskell libraries and tools.
 
There is also a #gentoo-haskell
 
[http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/IRC_channelirc channel] on freenode.

<p><em>GHC 6.4.2 Release Candidates</em>
 
Simon Marlow
 
[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.glasgow.user/9588 announced]
 
that GHC was moving into release-candidate mode for
 
version 6.4.2. [http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/stable/dist/ Grab a snapshot]
 
and try it out. The available builds are: x86_64-unknown-linux (Fedora
 
Core 5), i386-unknown-linux (glibc 2.3 era), and Windows
 
(i386-unknown-mingw32). Barring any serious hiccups, the release should
 
be out in a couple of weeks.

Sneaking out without us noticing, in January, a
 
[http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/projects/refactor-fp/hare.html new snapshot]
 
of HaRe, the Haskell refactoring tool, was released.
 
This snapshot of HaRe 0.3 is now compatible with the latest GHC and
 
Programmatica. New refactorings have also been added.

[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/13414 announced]
 
lhs2TeX version 1.11, a preprocessor to generate LaTeX code from
 
literate Haskell sources.

lhs2TeX includes the following features:
 
<ul>
 
<li>Highly customized output.
 
<li>Liberal parser -- no restriction to Haskell 98.
 
<li>Generate multiple versions of a program or document from a single source.
 
<li>Active documents: call Haskell to generate parts of the
 
document (useful for papers on Haskell).
 
<li>A manual explaining all the important aspects of lhs2TeX.
