I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.0 of the vty-ui
terminal user interface library.

The vty-ui library is a complete interactive user interface
development toolkit for terminal applications.  It provides a wide
range of "widgets" and infrastructure for implementing them, along
with event loop and event handling facilities and text attribute
management.  Some examples of functionality provided by the library

 * Box layout widgets
 * Checkboxes and radio buttons
 * Scrolling lists
 * A filesystem browser
 * Dialog boxes
 * Tables
 * Single-line text editing

This release is a complete rewrite and is therefore incompatible with
applications built with previous releases.  However, many of the same
concepts -- even types -- are present in the rewrite.

The library comes with a collection of demonstration programs (built
with the 'demos' cabal flag) and a comprehensive User's Manual in
addition to the standard Haddock API documentation.
