[Haskell] ANNOUNCE: Haddock version 0.7

I've just noticed that haddock-0.7 creates Data-Map.html instead of
Data.Map.html files (and links to these files)!

I've actually proposed this change, but it does not fit to the currently
released haddock documentation of the libraries. (Our web server used to
reject the file Data.Map.html, because ".Map" was interpreted as extension.)

So maybe haddock-0.7 should be installed only in conjunction with the
next ghc release. (or is a haddock release needed that really matches
the current ghc-6.4 library documentation?)

Cheers Christian
