Announcement: wxHaskell version 0.5


This is patch-level release against ghc 6.2, and I also added support
for Html window events.

All the best,

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

wxHaskell is therefore build on top of wxWindows -- 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
native look-and-feel, and it has a very active community (ranked among
the top 25 most active projects on sourceforge).

Since most of the interface is automatically generated from the
wxEiffel binding, the current release of wxHaskell already supports
about 75% of the wxWindows functionality -- 2878 methods in 513
classes with 1347 constant definitions.

wxHaskell has been build with GHC 6.x on Windows, MacOS X and
Unix systems with GTK. A binary distribution is available for Windows
and MacOS X.

And even if you don't intend to write GUI's yourself, it will be fun
to check out the screenshots at <http://wxhaskell.sourceforge.net>.

All the best,
   Daan Leijen.
