It's gone; try "cont" (lowercase).
mtl2 replaced the old standalone monads with monad transformers over the
Identity monad (so Cont is a type alias for ContT Identity); however, it's
not possible to create data constructors for type aliases, so the Cont data
constructor is gone and a "cont" smart constructor has taken its place.
Prelude Control.Monad.Cont> :t cont
cont :: ((a -> r) -> r) -> Cont r a
The same is true of State, Reader, and Writer.
