I am very pleased to announce the 0.2 release of the diagrams package,
an embedded domain-specific language for creating simple graphics in a
compositional style.  This release includes a number of significant
new features, including:

  * support for arbitrary straight and curved paths
  * more shape primitives, including polygons and rounded rectangles
  * support for rendering text
  * PNG, PDF, PS, and SVG output
  * built-in color support replaced with external dependence 
    on the feature-rich colour library

and many more!  More information, examples, and installation
instructions can be found at http://code.haskell.org/diagrams.  More
features are planned for future releases, so contributions and
suggestions are welcome.

(Please note: since diagrams depends on the Cairo library, which has
unfortunately not been Cabalized, you cannot install the diagrams
library with cabal-install, unless you already have the cairo package
installed. See the above website for instructions.)

A special thanks to Dougal Stanton for his contributions to the
library and help in preparing this release.
