Hi All,
I'm pleased to announce version 1.1
    of the Disciplined Disciple Compiler (DDC)

Disciple is an explicitly lazy dialect of Haskell which supports:
  - first class destructive update of arbitrary data.
  - computational effects without the need for state monads.
  - type directed field projections.
  - allied functional goodness.

All this and more through the magic of effect typing.

New in this version:
  - support for x86_64 under linux and darwin, thanks to Jared Putnam.
  - the -make flag now does a full dependency driven build/rebuild.
  - constructor classes.
  - irrefutable patterns.
  - partial support for monadic do notation.
  - an unboxed Bool# type with true# and false# literals.
  - field projection punning.
  - lots more example code.

DDC: more than lambdas.
