I have not made an annoucement in a while, but there have been several
DrIFT releases, So this will be a lump announcement for the last few.


some highlights:
a script is included to make ghc much easier to use. simply call ghc
with the options "-F -pgmF drift-ghc" and everything will "just work".

syntax fixes: infix constructors, strictness annotations, newtype record syntax. 

GhcBinary deriving rule to derive byte based ghc binary instances

deriving 'update' gives much more useful functions now. for each label
foo you get foo_u and foo_s to update and set the field respectivly,
these can now be used on any data value of the appropriate type, passing
through values that don't have the required field untouched.

for the complete changelog.
