Haskell Weekly News
Issue 38 - June 25, 2006

   Welcome to issue 38 of HWN, a weekly newsletter covering developments
   in the Haskell community. Each week, new editions are posted to [1]the
   Haskell mailing list as well as to [2]the Haskell Sequence and
   [3]Planet Haskell. [4]RSS is also available, and headlines appear on

   This edition mechanised, automated and published thanks to
   Text.PrettyPrint, hopefully making it easier to keep the weekly news
   schedule in future.

     * The GHC Hackathon . Simon Peyton-Jones [6]announced that GHC HQ
       are going to run a hackathon, in Portland, just before ICFP this
       September (14-15th). It'll be held at Galois's offices, in
       Beaverton. Thanks go to [7]Galois for hosting the meeting. [8]Here
       are the details. If you are interested in finding out a bit about
       how GHC works inside, then you should find the hackathon fun. It
       will be informal and interactive. If you think you might come,
       please take a look at the above page, and register.

     * Bytecode API library . Robert Dockins [9]announced a release of an
       alpha version of a library for reading and writing the YHC
       bytecode file format. It reads and writes the entire bytecode set,
       version 1.9 (the one used by recent YHC builds). [10]Check it out.
