Haskell Weekly News: September 6, 2005
Greetings, and thanks for reading the sixth 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
* h4sh 0.2. Donald Bruce Stewart announced version 0.2 of h4sh, a
tool to expose Haskell functions to shell scripters. This release adds
more functions, removed argument flags, cabalized the package, added
regex operators, and had some other changes as well.
* cabal-get/put beta. Isaac Jones announced the beta of cabal-get,
which will download and install Haskell packages and their
dependencies. It is designed to work for any cabal-compatible package.
The cabal-get team is looking for beta testers to try out both
cabal-get and cabal-put.
Emacs haskell-mode. Frederik Eaton began a thread on the Emacs
haskell-mode, asking where the latest version is available from.
Time limits on computations. Dmitry Vyal asked how to set a time limit
on computations. Several different suggestions were presented over the
course of the discussion.
The Haskell CVS server, previously hosted at OGI, is now being hosted
by Galois. There is a new machine and updated software, but it should
be a drop-in replacement overall.
Darcs 1.0.4pre3 and pre4. Two new Darcs prerelease versions happened this
week. First, 1.0.4pre3 was announced this week. 1.0.4pre4 quickly
followed, correcting an error in a Makefile. This is expected to be
the last prerelease prior to 1.0.4 itself.
Quote of the Week
"When I read through a Haskell program, it's more like reading a novel
than solving a calculus problem." -- post on the Haskell Sequence
