I'm pleased to announce the first release of Bravo, a static text 
template generation library, on Hackage: 

Bravo is a text template library that provides parsing and generation of 
templates at compile time. Templates can be read from strings or files 
and for each a new record data type is created, allowing convenient 
access to all template variables in a type-safe manner. Since all 
templates are processed at compile time, no extra file access or error 
handling at runtime is necessary.

Bravo is inspired by the PHP template engine Smarty and the Haskell 
template library chunks. Compared to chunks, Bravo provides additional 
features like conditional template evaluation, embedding of Haskell 
expressions and customized data type generation. I'm going to add 
further information to the HaskellWiki page 
(http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Bravo) later.

Bravo is still highly experimental and not well-tested, so bug reports 
and additional feedback are very welcome. I'd also like to hear if you 
feel the package dependencies are to restrictive.
