The next release candidate of buddha 1.0 will work with ghc 6. I am in Sweden
at the moment, which is VERY far away from home, so I won't be able to
release it until next week.
As for multi parameter type classes buddha might have enough unofficial
support for them, but not functional dependencies at the moment.
As a designer of debugging tools it is very useful for me to know what kind
of things people want. Your input will help me to prioritise the things that
If you have programs with bugs in them then I would love to see them.
Test cases from "the wild world" are very useful to me also.
I'm sorry that you are disappointed, but I hope that with your feedback
the situation can be improved.
