Haskell Weekly News: November 15, 2005
Greetings, and thanks for reading the 15th issue of HWN, a weekly
newsletter for the Haskell community. Each Tuesday, new editions will be
posted (as text) to the Haskell mailing list and (as HTML) to The
* York Haskell Compiler. Thomas Davie announced the York Haskell
Compiler project, which already has working code. Quite a few people
chimed in with questions.

thread is too long to completely summarize here, and branched out in
several directions, including a discussion of the haskell.org homepage.
Haskell users survey. John Hughes wrote about a web-based survey about

Darcs 1.0.4 was released this week. There are quite a few performance
improvements, a new posthook option, manifest feature, new "darcs put"
command, more git support, and various bugfixes.
Quote of the Week
"Impossible things are delayed immediately. Miracles may take a little
longer." -- Claus Reinke on haskell-cafe.
About Haskell Weekly News
Yes, it's late again. But, while I am no Zaphod Beeblebrox, carry no
towel, have no Improbability Drive, and certainly couldn't have come up

called weekly :-)
Want to continue reading HWN? Please help us create new editions of this
newsletter. Please see the contributing information, or send stories to
hwn -at- complete -dot- org. There is also a Darcs repository available.
