> I would like to announce the first release of my program lushtags.
> Available on hackage: cabal install lushtags
> At github: https://github.com/bitc/lushtags

> What is lushtags? From the README:
> lushtags
> ========
> Create ctags compatible tags files for Haskell programs
> Similar programs are [hasktags][1], [gasbag][2], [hothasktags][3], and GHC's
> builtin ctags generation.
> lushtags differs from these by being designed to have smooth integration with
> the [Vim Tagbar][4] plugin.
> Tagbar is nice because it deals with creating tags automatically. There is no
> need to manually run commands or keep track of tag files. Just open any Haskell
> file in Vim and the Tagbar window will instantly show an interactive browsable
> list of all the functions and declarations in the file. This window also
> updates automatically as you edit the file.
> The tags created by lushtags are marked with several extensions, so that when
> used with Tagbar you get these features:
> - Type signatures are displayed for functions.
> - Tags are properly scoped so that, for example, data declarations appear as a
>  tree with their constructors scoped as children.
> - Definitions that are exported from the module are marked as "public" and
>  appear emphasized in Tagbar.
> - Tag locations are internally stored as patterns, not line numbers, so that
>  you can correctly jump to tags even if they have moved in the source code
>  during editing.
