The Debian maintainer is pleased to announce the 0.6 packages for xmonad!
The Debian packages consist of a precompiled xmonad binary, as well as
the xmonad core and contribution libraries with documentation.
* Integrates nicely into your Package system
* Clean installation and removal.
* Someone to bug about problems
PS: Upload to the Debian archive is still depending on the updated
haskell-x11. As soon as I get some positive feedback about these
packages, I will do the update myself and then upload xmonad to the
