> Fellow Haskellers,
> I'm happy to announce the release of haskell-mode 2.5.
> * By web: http://projects.haskell.org/haskellmode-emacs/
> * By darcs: http://code.haskell.org/haskellmode-emacs/
> Furthermore, there is a change of maintainer; if you have
> issues, you should now contact me instead of Stefan Monnier.
> haskell-mode 2.5
> =============
> I was uncertain whether to mark this a minor or major release.
> On the one hand, very little has changed in core functionality.
> On the other, a new minor mode for indentation has been added:
> haskell-indentation.el, written by Kristof Bastiaensen.
> It will be familiar to those of you who have been tracking the CVS
> repository; there are only minor bug-fixes relative to the last
> version to be uploaded there.
> For the rest of you:
> haskell-indentation.el is an intelligent indentation mode in the
> style of haskell-indent.el, with a few changes to improve
> usability. Specifically, instead of a tab cycle, backspace is now
> used to reduce the nesting level, while tab will increase it.
> The behaviour is otherwise substantially the same; only valid
> nestings will be considered.
> It can be turned on by adding
> (add-hook 'haskell-mode-hook 'turn-on-haskell-indentation)
> to your .emacs file, as described in the README. As usual,
> it is mutually exclusive with the two other indentation modes.
> Known bugs:
> * Occasionally, the haskell-indentation parser will get stuck
>   on what it considers to be invalid haskell code, and refuse
>  to accept your commands; this includes, mainly,
>  haskell-newline-and-indent. To avoid annoyance, if you bind
>  RET to haskell-newline-and-indent, you should bind M-RET
>  to plain newline.
