Subject: ANN: Haddock version 2.5.0

--------------------------------------------
-- Haddock 2.5.0
--------------------------------------------

A new version of Haddock, the Haskell documentation tool, is out!

If you're using GHC 6.10.2 and Haddock 2.4.2, you should be able to upgrade
to
this version without any problem. If you're using something else, you
should
re-install any documentation that you want to link to after upgrading.

Please use the bug tracker to submit bug reports or feature requests.

--------------------------------------------
-- Changes in version 2.5.0
--------------------------------------------

  * Drop support for GHC 6.8.*

  * Add support for GHC 6.10.3 and 6.10.4

  * Revert to the old multi-page index for large packages (#106)

  * Show GADT records in the generated documentation

  * Create the output directory if it doesn't exist (#104)

  * Use the native codegen instead of compiling via C for TH modules

  * Add --use-unicode flag for displaying prettier versions of common
symbols

  * Mutiple verbosity levels: remove --verbose and add --verbosity=n

  * Simpler versioning of .haddock files

To avoid slow search, Haddock switches from the searchable index to the old
multi-page index for large packages (containing over 150 items). This, and
support for GADT records in the generated documentation was implemented by
Isaac Dupree as part of his Summer of Code project.

The --use-unicode flag was contributed by George Porges.

Isaac Dupree has been working on the first item as part of his SoC project
and
it is near completion.
