Hi all,

This is to announce the initial (alpha-ish) release of Haskeline, a
library for line input in command-line programs.  It is similar in
purpose to editline or readline, but is written in Haskell and thus
(hopefully) more easily used in other Haskell programs.

Hackage: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/haskeline
Development repo:  darcs get http://code.haskell.org/haskeline
Bug tracking: http://trac.haskell.org/haskeline

=== Features ===

- Runs on POSIX-compatible systems, including non-ANSI terminals.
- Runs on the native Windows APIs using MinGW (Cygwin support is TODO).
- Supports Unicode cross-platform (POSIX is only UTF-8, for now).
- Provides a rich user interface, supporting both Emacs and Vi edit
modes and customizable in a ~/.haskeline file.
- Implements history recall and incremental search.
- Allows custom tab completion functions which run in an arbitrary monad.
