This is a heads up about the X11 library. For the past 6 months
a set of extensions, required by xmonad, to this library have been
developed in the so-called X11-extras package. 

The time came to merge these together, finally.

A new head branch of X11 has been created, which lives at:


with the merged source (adding support for xinerama, window manger
stuff, X events, X fonts and more). This has also been tagged as
X11 1.3.0 (following the versioning spec), and uploaded to hackage.

Any stable branch ghc wishes to use for its extras bundle can still be
found at darcs.haskell.org/packages/X11.
