                     Haskell Weekly News: November 8, 2005

   Greetings, and thanks for reading the 14th issue of HWN, a weekly
   newsletter for the Haskell community. Each Tuesday, new editions will be
   posted (as text) to [1]the Haskell mailing list and (as HTML) to [2]The
   Haskell Sequence.

     * Gtk2hs 0.9.10. Duncan Coutts announced that the latest version of the
       GTK bindings for Haskell is now [4]available. Major new features
       include the Cairo vector graphics library bindings, Pango text layout
       code, new Gtk+ 2.8 APIs, and a Windows installer.

     * Frown 0.6. Ralf Hinze [5]announced the first release of Frown, a

       interesting features and is considered beta-quality at this time.

     * network-alt 0.3 and hsgnutls 0.2.1. Einar Karttunen [6]announced the
       availability of new versions of these two libraries. network-alt is an
       alternative networking library designed to have a nicer API and better
       performance. hsgnutls is a TLS/SSL layer atop the GNU TLS library,
       supporting both client and server applications.
