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).

          hexpat, hexpat-pickle: Haskell bindings to the stream-oriented XML parser

          I’ve updated the Arch package for haskell-hexpat, the Haskell bindings to libexpat. You can get the package here.

          $ yaourt --aur -S haskell-hexpat

          Also now available, a new package: hexpat-pickle: XML picklers based on hexpat, almost source code compatible with HXT.

          This package allows Haskell data structures to be pickled to/from the Tree datatype defined in the hexpat package. It is almost source code compatible with the pickling functionality of the HXT package, to allow you to switch easily between the two implementations.

          You can get haskell-hexpat-pickle for Arch here.
