I am pleased to announce version 0.9.9 "Blue Ginger" of the
C interface generator C->Haskell.  Among bug fixes, the
system includes the following features wrt to the previous

  * Sizeof hooks (to compute the size of C types in Haskell)
  * Local prefix for enum hooks
  * Pointer hooks (abstract pointers, foreign pointers, and
    stable pointer)
  * Support for parametrised pointers 
  * Extended documentation including a description of all
    binding hooks 
  * Deriving option for enum hooks
  * Adapted to GHC 5.0

This release greatly benefitted from code contributions by
Armin Sander and Axel Simon.  Moreover, a number of people
have been very helpful in reporting and, in some cases,
fixing bugs.  Thanks guys!
