I'm pleased to announce the bugfix 0.9.2 release of xmonad core and

Note that no new features are included relative to 0.9.1 or
0.9. Compatibility with ghc-7 and mtl-2 is added, without breaking
compatibility with older versions. This release has been tested with
GHCs back to 6.10.

As usual you can get this version with cabal-install:

> cabal update
> cabal install xmonad-0.9.2 xmonad-contrib-0.9.2

Otherwise the packages can be found on hackage:


A number of minor issues exist in this release. Haddock documentation
does not build with more recent haddocks [1], but the documentation for
0.9.1 is the same.  Another issue is that the Properties.hs fails to
build with ghc < 7, which is only compiled when building the test
suite (-ftesting). Both problems do not exist in the versions from the
darcs repositories on code.haskell.org.

Hopefully the 0.10 release will be out shortly in the New Year, which
will include the rest of the patches recorded since October 2009.
