I'm pleased to announce version 1.0.0 of ConfigFile.

ConfigFile is a parser and writer for handling sectioned config files
in Haskell.

The ConfigFile module works with configuration files in a standard
format that is easy for the user to edit, easy for the programmer
to work with, yet remains powerful and flexible.  It is inspired by,
and compatible with, Python's ConfigParser module.  It uses files
that resemble Windows .INI-style files, but with numerous

ConfigFile provides simple calls to both read and write config files.
It's possible to make a config file parsable by this module,
the Unix shell, and make.

ConfigFile was previously a part of the MissingH library where it was
known as ConfigParser.  The code in this release is unchanged from its
state in MissingH, other than the changes necessary to make it a
standalone package.

You can find the ConfigFile homepage, which features a wiki, downloads,
API reference, darcs repository viewer, and bug tracker, at:
