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

The functional reactive grapefruit gui library supported
 haskelldb suite now supported

gtk2hs 0.10 now in [community]
Installing Packages from AUR
To install AUR packages, we recommend yaourt, as in:
yaourt noconfirm lightbg aur S haskellhaha
You may want to alias that command line. Here’s an example from this week’s releases:
The reason to use yaourt over cabalinstall 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.
