Fellow Haskelleers,

I'm pleased to announce the release of haskell-src-exts-1.8.0!

* On hackage: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/haskell-src-exts
* Via cabal: cabal install haskell-src-exts
* Darcs repo: http://code.haskell.org/haskell-src-exts

For users of hsx, the latest version 0.6.1 works unchanged with this release.

1.7.2 --> 1.8.0

* Add an instance Show Fixity (derived).

* Support for the new ANN and INLINE_CONLIKE pragmas.

* Remove support for CFILES and INCLUDE pragmas. The support wasn't
  correct anyway, as it assumed the pragmas appeared at the top of
  files. As CFILES/INCLUDE pragmas can (and do) appear anywhere,
  there's no hope to support them in the AST. Better to remove the
  support altogether. Files with CFILES/INCLUDE pragmas can still
  be parsed of course, but those pragmas will be handled as comments.

* Parsing with ignoreLinePragmas = False now correctly updates the
  file name.

* Allow the whole SPECIALISE/INLINE family of pragmas in instance
  declarations. The InsInline constructor is removed, and is now
  represented by 'InsDecl (InlineSig ...)'.

* Fix a bug with line numbering and quasi quotes, and a similar one
  with line numbering and CDATA.

* Fix a few minor bugs in the exactPrinter.

* Fix the strange handling of so called strings in LINE pragmas.
