Subject: ANN: MissingH 0.12.0 (Better binary file support)
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general
Date: Monday 10th October 2005 13:27:34 UTC (over 12 years ago)
MissingH 0.12.0 is now available.

Changes from 0.11.5 include:

 * MissingH.IO.Binary can now work with Strings or [Word8], instead
   of just strings.  This support is implemented with a typeclass,
   so the module is fully backwards-compatible.

 * MissingH.IO.Binary can now work with any HVIO object, not just
   Handles.

 * New support for binary I/O in MissingH.IO.HVIO and HVFS.

 * Updated BlockIO and Threads.Child to 2005-02-14 versions from
   Peter.

 * MissingH.IO.Binary.hBlockCopy optimized to require no conversion
   of the buffer.

 * Fixed docs to work with Haddock 0.7

 * New module MissingH.Daemon to support detaching from a controlling 
   terminal

 * New simplegrep.hs example

  or

  gopher://quux.org/1/devel/missingh

MissingH source and Debian packages are also available from any Debian
mirror, such as:

  http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/missingh

  (There is approximately a 48-hour delay before new versions appear
  there.)

Currently in development for MissingH 0.13.0:

 * Native Haskell support for creating and extracting tar files

 * E-mail mailbox abstraction and implementation for Maildirs and
   MBOXes
