I'm happy to announce two major releases:

fltkhs-themes [1] : a drop-in replacement to FLTKHS [2] with a vastly
better looking UX [3] . The small but growing showcase app should hopefully
give a better feel for it. And to help you get started with your own
project there is a starter app [7] and a lot more documentation [8].

fltkhs[2]: the underlying GUI binding to FLTK which after nearly 6 months
of continuous work has been overhauled with a ton of bug fixes and shoring
up of the API (fixing leaks, making types more precise via newtypes etc.)
and new features have been added including new widgets and out-of-the-box
HiDPI and SVG support (which fltkhs-themes relies on heavily for nicer
widgets). All the starter kits and demo packages have been updated to this
version. If you need help migrating an existing app to the new API feel
free to send email to the address on Hackage page or hit me up on Twitter.
There a lot more documentation on installation and getting started in the
Hackage docs [4].

As always if you have any problems please open an issue on fltkhs [5],
fltkhs-themes or any of my other repos.

Hopefully these releases help you make Haskell native GUI apps that are
fast, portable, easy to install/deploy, and nice looking!
