| Subject: [Haskell] new SOE package and the annoucement of GLFW
| Hi all,
| After much struggle to bring the SOE source to be compatible with the
| latest GHC, I'm pleased to announce that it's available at
|   http://www.haskell.org/soe
| It's has been tested on Windows (both XP and Vista), Linux and Mac OS
| X under GHC 6.6.1. The code now requires a Haskell package GLFW, an
| interface to the GLFW OpenGL Framework (http://glfw.sourceforge.net),
| which is an alternative to GLUT for OpenGL based programs.
| Most SOE code examples are not affected by this change except that
| they now make use of the included SOE.hs instead of the previous
| SOEGraphics module. The SOE.hs now handles all window and drawing
| activities through GLFW and OpenGL. The music part of SOE code has
| also been brought up to date.
| Please help to report bugs or suggestions if you have any. Help is
| also needed to make the GLFW Haskell package fully compatible with
| cross-platform Cabal installation steps.
| Regards,
| Paul Liu
