As an enthusiastic Hugs user, I recently installed Hugs using 
WinHugs-Sep2006.exe and noted the following:

1. When running hugs.exe from an ordinary DOS prompt, activating the editor 
(Notepad) using :e returns control immediately to the Hugs prompt, in 
addition to starting the Notepad. So, although I am able to edit the desired 
(Haskell) source file, I need to do a :r after saving, to make Hugs aware of 
the changes. This is certainly different from what I have experienced with 
earlier Hugs'es where :e did not return until edits were completed, enabling 
Hugs to respond to the most recent edits immediately.

2. Running hugs.exe from a DOS prompt reports the version as 20051031 whereas 
activating WinHugs reports Version Sep 2006.

3. In the WinHugs menu, the menu item Help has it's "l" underscored. 
Nevertheless, Alt-h is what is required to activate the help menu.

I will gladly enter Hugs trac issues for these items if convenient.

Thanks and best regards
