Gtk2Hs - A Haskell GUI library based on the Gtk+ GUI Toolkit.
Version is now available from:

This release is only needed for Windows users. If you have version 0.9.7
working there is no need to upgrade.

Source and binary packages are available for Windows.
There are binary packages for Gtk+ 2.4.x and 2.6.x. The binary packages require
GHC 6.2.2.

You may wish to use Gtk+ 2.6 since it follows the Windows native look
and themes whereas Gtk+ 2.4 did not.

Installation on Windows is fairly straightforward. There is an installer
for Gtk+ on Windows and installing Gtk2Hs just involves unzipping and
running a batch file. Instructions are here:

For future Gtk2Hs releases we hope to provide an MSI installer to make
it even easier.

Changes since 0.9.7: 
      * build fixes for Windows
      * almost all modules now carry LGPL 2.1 license
      * a couple of extra functions are now bound

Other changes and news since the last release announcement:
      * there is an introductory article by Kenneth Hoste in the first
        issue of The Monad.Reader:
      * a complete website redesign
      * many new screenshots: 
      * packages of version 0.9.7 are available for Gentoo and FreeBSD

Please report all problems to gtk2hs-users at lists.sourceforge.net .
Contributions and feedback are also most welcome.
