Haskell Weekly News
Issue 65 - September 23, 2007

   Welcome to issue 65 of HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the
   [1]Haskell community.

   This episode comes to you live from Portland, Oregon, where the HWN
   automaton now lives, running on a virtual host at Galois, Inc.

   Cabal 1.2.0 released. Thomas Schilling [2]announced that [3]Cabal
   version 1.2.0 is available. The major new feature in this release is
   support for Cabal configurations. This allows package authors to more
   easily adopt their package descriptions to different system parameters
   such as operating system, architecture, or compiler. In addition, some
   optional features may be enabled or disabled explicitly by the package

   SparseCheck. Matthew Naylor [4]announced SparseCheck, a library for
   typed, depth-bounded logic programming in Haskell allowing convenient
   expression of test-data generators for properties with sparse domains.
   More information on the [5]home page.

   monadLib 3.3.0. Iavor Diatchki [6]announced a new version of monadLib,
   adding the identiy transformer, and a family of deriving functions.

   6. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general/15586

   ListLlke. John Goerzen [7]announced ListLike, a generic interface to
   the various list-like structures in Haskell.

   HaL2: Meeting Haskell in Leipzig 2: videos. Klaus Meier [8]announced
   that the videos and presentations of the talks given at HaL2 are
   [9]now online.

   The Monad.Reader: Issue 8. Wouter Swierstra [10]announced that the
   latest issue of The Monad.Reader is [11]now available. Issue 8
   consists of the following two articles: Brent Yorgey on 'Generating
   Multiset Partitions' and Conrad Parker's 'Type-Level Instant Insanity'

   hstats-0.1. Marshall Beddoe [14]announced a statistical computing
   module for Haskell.

  14. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cafe/28973

   HIntegerByInt. Isaac Dupree [15]announced a [16]reimplementation, in
   Haskell, of the Integer type that Haskell provides in its Prelude. It
   is designed in mind of being actually usable as the implementation of
   that type, for compilers. It is also a module that exports a working
   Integer type. It is in terms of only basic Prelude functions, lists,
   and Int. It is NOT a purely inductive definition, because Int is much
   faster than a purely inductive definition would allow, and
   nevertheless often easier to come by (more portable, license-wise,
   size-wise, nuisance-wise...) than GMP or other C bignum libraries.

   screen use.

   languages such as Haskell, OCaml and SML.

Quotes of the Week

     * nomeata: Haskell is basically Swiss: Small, Efficient, and it is
       fun to explore the higher parts.

     * Tom Moertel: In the not-too-distant future, perhaps, we might look
       back in amazement at the days when important security properties
       were neither free nor guaranteed but expensive and uncertain,
       underwritten only by the heroic efforts of individual programmers,
       struggling against impossible odds to achieve inhuman perfection.

     * Adam Turoff: In any case, Simon Peyton Jones is right -- the way
       forward involves functional programming, whether it means choosing
       a language like Haskell, or integrating ideas from Haskell into
       your language of choice.

     * bootslack: Once, around the time of the discovery of fire, there
       was a large population of people that thought mastering fire would
       be too difficult so they didn't. The rest of us killed them,
       cooked them and ate them.

Code Watch

   Notable new features and bug fixes to the Haskell compilers.

   Thu Sep 6 09:19:48 PDT 2007. Norman Ramsey . [179]massive changes to
   add a 'zipper' representation of C--

 179. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cvs.ghc/23114

   Tue Aug 14 03:36:23 PDT 2007. Ben Lippmeier. Add graph coloring
   register allocator. Refactored linear allocator into separate liveness
   annotation and allocation stages. Added graph coloring allocator, use
   -fregs-graph to enable. New dump flags are -ddump-asm-native -- output
   of cmm -> native transform. -ddump-asm-liveness -- code annotated with
   register liveness info -ddump-asm-coalesce -- output of register move
   coalescing (this is a separate pass when using the coloring allocator)
   (this could change in the future) -ddump-asm-regalloc -- code after
   register allocation -ddump-asm-regalloc-stages -- blocks after each
   build/spill stage of coloring allocator -ddump-asm-conflicts -- a
   global register liveness graph in graphviz format The new register
   allocator will allocate some registers, but it's not quite ready for
   prime-time yet. The spill code generator needs some work.
