Dear Haskellers,

I am pleased to announce the release of genprog-0.1, a genetic
programming library.

Genetic programming is an evolutionary technique, inspired by biological
evolution, to evolve programs for solving specific problems. A genetic
program is represented by a value of an algebraic datatype and
associated with a custom-defined fitness value indicating the quality of
the solution. Starting from a randomly generated initial population of
genetic programs, the genetic operators of selection, crossover, and
mutation are used to evolve programs of increasingly better quality.

genprog-0.1 is available from Hackage at:

An example of how to use the library is included in the documentation.
