Subject: ANN: Yi 0.4.1
Date: Sunday 27th July 2008 15:08:04 UTC (over 9 years ago)
I'm very pleased to announce the 0.4.1 release of the Yi editor. == Yi == Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The long-term goal of the Yi project is to provide the editor of choice for Haskell programmers. In the meantime, we have fun by hacking an editor in a decent language :) Yi is not a finished product. This is an alpha-quality release. However, Yi has become a lot more accessible than previously, so if you feel like testing it, now might be a good time to take a look. == Installation == Using cabal install: cabal install yi-0.4.1 If you want gtk support, first install gtk2hs 0.9.13. If you want vty support, pass the -fvty option to cabal install. == Features == * A purely functional editor core; * Key-bindings written as parsers of the input; * Emacs, Vim and (partial) Cua emulations provided by default; * Vty, Gtk2Hs, and (experimental) Cocoa front-ends; * Static configuration (XMonad style) for fast load; * Simple Haskell support: * Syntax highlighting * Auto-indentation * Call cabal-build within the editor == Links == * download: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/yi * FAQ: http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Yi/FAQ * homepage: http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Yi * check and report issues: http://code.google.com/p/yi-editor/issues/list * darcs repository: http://code.haskell.org/yi * get involved: mailto:[email protected] * release notes: http://code.google.com/p/yi-editor/wiki/ReleaseNotes0o4 == Acks == This release is brought to you by: Allan Clark Andrew Birkett Corey O'Connor Duncan Coutts Evan Martin Fraser Wilson Gustav Munkby Gwern Branwen Jean-Philippe Bernardy Krasimr Angelov Nicolas Pouillard Sean Leather Thomas Schilling and all the contributors to the previous versions.
