Haddock 0.7 is released, get it from here:


Haddock is a tool for generating documentation for Haskell libraries.
This new version has already been in use for some time generating the
documentation for GHC's libraries:


Here's the change list for version 0.7:

  * Changes in the way Haddock decides where to direct hyperlinks.  Each
    entity is now assigned a single "home" module, and all hyperlinks
    directed to that module.  See the docs ("Hyperlinking and
    entities") for details.

  * New options --ignore-all-exports, --hide

  * New option --use-package for creating documentation that hyperlinks
    the HTML documentation for existing packages on your system.  It
    by querying ghc-pkg for the location of the Haddock interface and
    HTML for the given package.

  * Parts of the HTML documentation, notably lists of instances, are
    now "collapsible" with a +/- button.  Also, the contents page is now
    in the form of tree in which subtrees can be collapsed.

  * Support for Microsoft DevHelp and HtmlHelp 2.0 formats.

  * Support for a short description for each module for the contents

  * Compiles with GHC 6.4+

  * Various bugfixes

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this version.  The TODO list grows
long, however - more help is always welcome!
