I am pleased to announce a refresh of the Haskell packages for EPEL-6
is now available in testing. The major changes are:
- ghc-6.12.3 -> ghc-7.0.4
- Haskell Platform updated to 2011.4
- xmonad updated to 0.10
- darcs updated to 2.5.2
- gtk2hs packages to 0.12.2 
If you use EPEL6 then please test.
 note that gtksourceview2 doesn't build with the gtksourceview2 in el6 though.
If you use Fedora's xmonad package then please help to test
the latest update for F16 and F17 which is now in testing.
It should fix issues with broken shared libs when upgrading, e.g.:
- xmonad 0.9.2 -> 0.10 dyn shared lib bump (F16)
- F16 -> F17 libgmp soname bump
Basically I just added a check to xmonad-start and if there are shared libs "not found"
and then it forces a recompile of one's xmonad user binary.
It seems to work for me anyway but more testing would be appreciated.
It would be nice if the xmonad update for F17 would be available
when F17 is released tomorrow, since the gmp bump means
all F16 binaries will break on upgrade.
I want to announce that the haskell-sig FAS account
email address was finally been updated recently from
the old fedora-haskell-list address (which is now read-only)
to the fedora haskell-devel list.
Note the SIG account in Bugzilla has also been updated:
we now have to use haskell-devel(a)lists.fedoraproject.org
when CC'ing Haskell Package Reviews, etc: the old address
is no longer valid.
