Subject: ANN: darcs 2.3.1: better docs, fewer bugs
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general
Date: Sunday 20th September 2009 20:38:24 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Dear Darcs users,

The darcs team would like to announce the immediate availability of a new 
stable version of darcs, 2.3.1. This is a bugfix release. The user-visible 
changes are:

   * Fix bugs in optimizations in 2.3.0
   * Documentation improvements
   * Remove autoconf build system

A more complete list of changes in this and older versions of darcs can be 
found at http://www.darcs.net/NEWS .

Installing
----------
You can obtain the source tarball at the following address:
   * http://darcs.net/releases/darcs-2.3.1.tar.gz

The build instructions are available in the enclosed README file in those
tarballs.

Moreover, if you have cabal-install available, you can install latest
stable
release of darcs by issuing the following commands (no tarballs needed):

    $ cabal update  
    $ cabal install darcs

This should give you a darcs binary in `~/.cabal/bin` -- you should
probably
add this to your PATH. More detailed instructions for installing on Windows

are
available near the end of this announcement.

Installing on Windows
---------------------

To install darcs on Windows systems from scratch, please download the
Haskell
Platform and MSYS:

 * http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/2009.2.0.1/HaskellPlatform-2009.2.0.1-
setup.exe
 * http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MSYS+Base+System/MSYS-1.0.11-
rc-1.exe/download

After installing both, you should have an "MSYS" icon: run MSYS and in the
terminal window type (the `$` character denotes the prompt, do not repeat
it):

    $ cabal update  
    $ cabal install darcs -f-curl

This should download, compile and install all required dependencies and
also
darcs itself. The resulting darcs executable will be placed into the
Haskell
Platform executables folder, and should be accessible from the MSYS shell 
(just
type "darcs --version" to check).

Yours,
  Reinier.
