Hello folks,

I'm please to announce the 0.3 release of the Yi editor.

Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The long-term goal
of the Yi project is to provide the editor of choice for Haskell programmers.
In the meantime, we have fun by hacking an editor in a decent language :)

Yi is not a finished product: this is a developer pre-release. However, Yi has
become a lot more accessible than previously, so if you consider hacking
on it, now might be a good time to take a look.


    * A purely functional editor core;
    * Keybindings written as parsers of the input;
    * Emacs and Vim emulations provided by default;
    * Vty, Gtk2Hs?, and (experimental) Cocoa frontends;
    * Embedding of GHC API for quick hacks and configuration.
