Version: January 2001 beta
I'm pleased to announce the availability of a new beta release
of Hugs98. This is a beta release that aims at giving as many
people as possible a chance to react to the changes and additions
that have recently been incorporated, before the next major version
is released on February 14 2001. A list of the most important
new features looks as follows:
- A Foreign Function Interface closely modelled after the one
provided by GHC.
- Built-in, Hood-like debugging support.
- A new syntax for recursive monad bindings.
- A new GUI under Windows that doesn't consume all CPU time.
See the release notes in the "docs" directory of the distribution
for more information on some of these features.
