There's the darcs changes list. The descriptions there in are .. terse :)

But here's a selection:
  * Add getLazyByteStringNul.

-- | Get a lazy ByteString that is terminated with a NUL byte. Fails
-- if it reaches the end of input without hitting a NUL.
getLazyByteStringNul :: Get L.ByteString

  * Fix strictness bug in runGetState that led to runtime errors.

  * Port binary to ghc 6.8

  * add parallel driver  (appears to be a parallel quicktest - which
is cool because the tests took quite a while previously).
