Arch Haskell News: Feb 16 2009

A regular update of Haskell in Arch Linux

Arch now has 926 Haskell packages in AUR.

That’s an increase of 27 new packages in the last 8 days, or 3.38 new Haskell apps a day. Well done everyone!

Noteworthy updates

Installing Packages from AUR

To install AUR packages, we recommend yaourt, as in:

yaourt --noconfirm  --lightbg --aur -S haskell-haha

You may want to alias that command line. Here’s an example from this week’s releases:

The reason to use yaourt over cabal-install is that AUR packages correctly resolve all versions and, more importantly, C library and other system dependencies. Packages will also be pulled from the binary releases in [extra] and [community] where available, saving you build times.

LLVM Haskell bindings

Bryan O’Sullivan and Lennart Augustsson’s high level LLVM bindings for Haskell are now packaged up nicely, making it super easy to drive LLVM from Haskell on Arch.

LHC: Lemmih’s Haskell Compiler

Arch now has another Haskell compiler!

LHC is a new Haskell compiler which aims to produce the most efficient programs possible via whole program analysis and other optimizations.It is a fork of JHC, to support the cabal build system, which lets us automatically package it for distros like Arch.

Darcs now auto-packaged for Arch

Since darcs, the world’s smartest revision control system, has become cabalised, and released via http://hackage.haskell.org, we’re now able to generate native packages from it automatically, using cabal2arch. This eases the maintaince burden dramatically, and should ensure continued up-to-date darcs packages for Arch.

The auto-packaged package is here.

Enjoy the revision control!
