I looked through the main Xmonad repo; I saw no major changes (some
very small tweaks and doc changes) since May. In XMC's repo, I only
saw rearrangements, tweaks, some revamps by me of XMonad.Util.Run not
really worth mentioning, and 2 new modules added. Hence, the sum total
of my 'update' is:

hunk ./man/HCAR.tex 49
 \item XMonad.Actions.DynamicWorkspaceOrder
 \item XMonad.Actions.WorkspaceNames
 \item XMonad.Actions.DynamicWorkspaceGroups
+\item XMonad.Hooks.Minimize - a hook to handle minimize/restore
window manager hints
+\item XMonad.Actions.GroupNavigation - allows cycling through; can
also keeps track of the
+  history of focused windows and allows returning to the most recently focused

The patch is attached.

Unless anyone knows of missing changes worth mentioning, I suggest
this be applied and then I can ping Janis to grab the new HCAR.tex
from http://code.haskell.org/xmonad/man/HCAR.tex
