[Haskell-cafe] ANNOUNCE: ThreadScope 0.1

Thanks for the (mostly) positive news about ThreadScope on Mac OS-X: that's great news. I plan to add a few more Save As... image options in ThreadScope 0.2 plus the ability to turn transparency on/off for PNG files. So hopefully one of the Save As formats might work. I don't think it is a bug in ThreadScope (although I will double check) - it is probably the port of Gth2Hs (but let me check before I say anything too slanderous). Now, how on earth do I track down a Mac OS-X machine at Microsoft ??!??!?!? :)

I've just released ThreadScope version 0.1 on Hackage. Threadscope is a graphical utility for viewing profiling information about Haskell threads. It was written jointly with Simon Marlow and Donnie Jones. It uses Gtk2HS so it works under Windows and the L-word operating system although there seem to be problems making it work with OS-X (due to Gtk2Hs issues I think).
This is great news! ThreadScope was very useful when I was debugging threading issues in the new I/O manager [1] Bryan and I have been working on.

I managed to get it to work on OS X after building gtk2hs from source. Once I got it to build the only problem I had is that it crashes when I try to save to an image file.
