Haskell Weekly News
Issue 94 - November 22, 2008

   Welcome to issue 94 of HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the
   [1]Haskell community.

   Lots of interesting reading this week! Martin Escardo writes about
   [2]finite search over infinite search spaces expressed as a monad;
   Conal Elliott writes about [3]the unambiguous choice operator and
   [4]merging partial values; Luke Palmer on [5]restricted data types and
   [6]Udon, his system for universal distributed object management; a post
   about [7]incremental parsing in Yi; Ryan Ingram on [8]parametric
   higher-order abstract syntax; Issue #12 of [9]the Monad.Reader; and
   much more!


   The Monad.Reader - Issue 12: Summer of Code Special. Wouter Swierstra
   [10]announced Issue 12 of [11]the Monad.Reader, featuring articles by
   Max Bolingbroke, Roman Cheplyaka, and Neil Mitchell describing their
   Summer of Code projects.

   Turbinado V0.1. Alson Kemp [12]announced the release of [13]Turbinado,
   an MVC web framework for Haskell.

   EEConfig-1.0. Bartosz Wojcik [14]announced the release of [15]EEConfig,
   a simple library for reading parameters from a configuration file.


   Proof of a multi-threaded application. Silviu Andrica [16]asked about
   the possibility of proving the correctness of a multi-threaded
   application written in Haskell, leading to a discussion of STM, model
   checking, and related issues.

   Monadic bind with associated types + PHOAS?. Ryan Ingram [17]wrote
   about using parametric higher-order abstract syntax to get the benefits
   of HOAS (using the embedding language to express binding and
   substitution) while still being able to inspect or optimize the
   resulting expressions.
