Hi all,

I'd like to announce a new cross-platform implementation of Conal  
Elliott's image synthesis language - Pan.
For more information see:


This is very much an alpha release of the software.  I have only  
built and tested it on Mac OS X and Linux, although it has been  
tested on Windows by another.

* Uses Don Stewart's hs-plugins library to dynamically load and  
display effects.
* Cross-platform. Uses Daan Leijen's wxHaskell and Sven Panne's  
HOpenGL libraries.
* Uses the Haskell Cabal libraries. Builds with version released in  
GHC 6.4.

* Not as fully featured as the original.
* Not as fast. Implemented directly in Haskell instead of generating  
C code.
