I've just released version 2.0.0 of the Communicating Haskell Processes 
(CHP) message-passing concurrency library onto Hackage.  The main change 
from 1.x is that I have split the functionality into two libraries: the 
core functionality remains in the chp package (now version 2.0.0), while 
some of the additional capabilities have been moved out to the new 
chp-plus package (version 1.0.0).  This should help in the long run by 
keeping the packages from becoming too large, and by allowing me to trim 
the dependencies of the core chp package.

I've written more about the changes here, for those who it will affect: 
http://chplib.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/splitting-chp/  This will require 
small changes to your build system if you're using CHP and you upgrade 
to the new versions.  The new versions should also fix build troubles 
with GHC 6.12 -- let me know if you have any troubles installing under 
6.10 or 6.12.
