> Hi, I am pleased to announce jhc 0.6.0, It has been a long time since an
> official release, so there have been a lot of changes. Jhc is an
> optimizing haskell compiler that focuses on creating fast and portable
> code. Jhc is still mainly of interest to jhc hackers and developers than
> the general haskell public, but it is starting to see use in embedded
> development with haskell so I decided to make more public announcements
> of major releases in the future.
> some links:
> The jhc homepage:
> http://repetae.net/computer/jhc/
> Installation Instructions:
> http://repetae.net/computer/jhc/building.shtml
> The jhc manual:
> http://repetae.net/computer/jhc/manual.html
> And I am happy to announce, there is now a yum repository*  for jhc and my
> other projects (such as DrIFT), so if you use an rpm based linux
> distribution, you can keep up to date with jhc official releases by
> doing:
>    ; rpm -i  http://repetae.net/yum/repetae-repo-1.0-3.noarch.rpm
>    ; yum install jhc
> A couple recent changes:
> jhc now comes bundled with the 'containers' and 'applicative' library
> making it much easier to compile many haskell programs out there.
> (Data.Graph, Data.IntMap, Data.IntSet, Data.Map, Data.Sequence,
> Data.Set, Data.Tree, Control.Applicative, Control.Arrow,
> Control.Category, Data.Foldable, Data.Traversable)
> signifigant speed and resource usage improvements in compilation time.
> transparent cross compilation support for creating windows programs on a
> unix box. (or iPhone/Nokia Tablet/etc..)
> If you are interested in jhc development, please sign up on the jhc
> mailing list here: http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/jhc
>        John
> * I would love to get proper 'deb's and BSD packages built also
>  automatically, if anyone wants to help with this, please join the list
>  and let us know.
