Dear Haskell,

Announcing the initial (0.1) release of the 'plot' and 'plot-gtk' packages.

Released under the "release early, release often" philosophy.

This package uses Cairo to render high quality graphs exportable as PNG, PS,
PDF, and SVG.

    * simple monadic interface to configure each figure and elements
    * title/subtitle
    * an array of plots in each figure with optional headers
    * configurable axes and ticks
    * configurable ranges
    * linear, log, semilog ranges
    * plot vectors or (Double -> Double) functions
    * line/point/linepoint/impulse/step/area plots
    * bar/histogram plots
    * optional error bars
    * mix and match data series types and formatting
    * fully configurable text elements
    * greyscale matrix visualisation

The companion package 'plot-gtk' allows creation and incremental update
of gtk-displayed plots from the ghci prompt and provides a 'plot' widget.

Suggestions, feature requests, and bug reports welcome.
