I'm very pleased to announce the 0.4.1 release of the Yi editor.

== Yi ==
Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The
long-term goal of the Yi project is to provide the editor of
choice for Haskell programmers. In the meantime, we have fun by
hacking an editor in a decent language :)

Yi is not a finished product. This is an alpha-quality release.
However, Yi has become a lot more accessible than
previously, so if you feel like testing it, now might be a good time
to take a look.

== Installation ==

Using cabal install:

  cabal install yi-0.4.1

If you want gtk support, first install gtk2hs 0.9.13.
If you want vty support, pass the -fvty option to cabal install.

== Features ==
    * A purely functional editor core;
    * Key-bindings written as parsers of the input;
    * Emacs, Vim and (partial) Cua emulations provided by default;
    * Vty, Gtk2Hs, and (experimental) Cocoa front-ends;
    * Static configuration (XMonad style) for fast load;
    * Simple Haskell support:
        * Syntax highlighting
        * Auto-indentation
        * Call cabal-build within the editor
