Recently, Proxima changed the GUI from wxHaskell to Gtk2Hs.

And the screenshot is an instantiation of a Helium [1] editor (using 
Helium as the backend to show the type information and values in the 
editor), so no support for (full) Haskell yet.

But I'm about to start my Master thesis project, which will (partially) 
be about creating a Proxima instance using GHC as the backend (and thus 
hopefully opening ways to implement a Haskell IDE). So maybe in some 
months Proxima does support full Haskell :)
