I've issued new releases of the text and text-icu packages, the fast,
comprehensive Unicode text manipulation libraries.


Features of text:

   - Compact array-based data representation.
   - Library code based on stream fusion automatically reduces copying in
   your application, compared to a more naive library.
   - The lazy text type supports streaming of data much larger than RAM.

Features of text-icu:

   - Locale sensitive case mapping.
   - [NEW] Language sensitive text boundary analysis.
   - Text normalization. (What is normalization?
   - [NEW] Access to the Unicode Character Database.
   - Locale sensitive string collation.
   - Conversion to and from a huge number of native encodings.
   - Efficient comparison of ByteString and Text.
