Arch Haskell News: February 2010

Hackage now has 1851 Haskell packages, of which 1541 (84%) have been natively packaged for Arch in AUR. All these packages are available via AUR, using the “bauerbill” tool (or other full-resolving package tool for Arch).

You can find the status of all Haskell packages in Arch here, regularly updated using the archlinux Haskell package tools.

Since the GHC 6.12 upgrade, there have been some major package updates:

Most things are now ready for GHC 6.12, with the notable exception of packages that:

  • depend on gtk2hs (not yet released for GHC 6.12)
  • parsec < 3 (Arch will be downgrading to parsec 2 to be HP compliant).
