Gmane
From: Judah Jacobson <judah.jacobson <at> gmail.com>
Subject: ANNOUNCE: Haskeline 0.6.2
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general
Date: Tuesday 15th September 2009 15:55:37 UTC (over 8 years ago)
I am pleased to announce the release of Haskeline 0.6.2:

  http://hackage.haskell.org/package/haskeline
  (Make sure to run cabal update first to get its updated dependencies.)

Haskeline provides a user interface for line input in command-line
programs.  The library is similar in purpose to readline or editline,
but since it is written in Haskell it is (hopefully) more easily used
in other Haskell programs.

With this release, thanks to much appreciated feedback and suggestions from
the
community, Haskeline's features become more competitive with its C
alternatives.  Improvements include:

 * A multitude of new emacs and vi bindings:
     http://trac.haskell.org/haskeline/wiki/KeyBindings

 * A new preference 'historyDuplicates' to remove repeated history entries

 * Recognize PageUp and PageDown keys

 * Compatibility with ghc-6.12

 * Correct width calculations for Unicode combining characters

Documentation, development and mailing list information can be found at:

  http://trac.haskell.org/haskeline

Best,
-Judah
