Hi everyone,

Oh, dear... it seems I've forgotten how to spell "cafe", and sent this 
message to haskell-caft at haskell.org the first time around.  I resent it 
to all the lists again (just to make sure everyone interested receives 
it), so I apologize for any duplicated messages you might have received. 
  In any case...

I'd like to release the announcement of Gtk2HS 0.10.0.  A lot of new 
stuff has gone into this release, including:

- Support for GHC 6.10
- Bindings to GIO and GtkSourceView-2.0
- Full switch to the new model-view implementation using a Haskell model
- Support for many more model-based widgets such as IconView and an 
updated binding for ComboBox
- Full Drag-and-Drop support
- Better support for Attributes in Pango
- Replaced Event for EventM monad, thereby improving efficiency and 
- Functions for interaction between Cairo and Pixbuf drawing
- Lots of bug fixes, code cleanups, and portability improvements

With this release, the bindings to GnomeVFS and GtkSourceView-1.0 have 
been deprecated.  The TreeList modules have been deprecated from the 
Gtk+ bindings.

Source and Win32 binaries are available at:


Thanks to everyone who submitted bug fixes and features this time around!
