I am happy to announce a new version of wxHaskell:
Windows users can still use wxInstall Achelanne 0.1 to install this new  
version of wxHaskell.[0][1]

Changes in wxHaskell since 0.92.2:
  - Improvements for compilation on BSD platform
  - Improved commandline handling
  - Sample program PaintGC.hs added
  - Compilation can now be done with an alternative wx-config.exe
  - Simplification of Windows build process with Stack
  - Several bugs solved

Thanks to everyone who contributed!

What is wxHaskell?
wxHaskell[2] is a portable and native GUI library for Haskell. The goal of
the project is to provide an industrial strength GUI library for Haskell,
but without the burden of developing (and maintaining) one ourselves.

wxHaskell is therefore built on top of wxWidgets[3] – a comprehensive C++
library that is portable across all major GUI platforms; including GTK,
Windows, X11, and MacOS X. Furthermore, it is a mature library (in
development since 1992) that supports a wide range of widgets with the
native look-and-feel.

See the homepage of wxHaskell for more information:
