Gtk2Hs version 0.9.7.1 is out now. It should appear on the sourceforge
Note the win32 binary package is specific to the version of Gtk+ you
install. A windows binary package for Gtk+ 2.4 and 2.6 will be uploaded
in the next day or so:
It's been tested:
* on Windows (2k3 and XP) and Linux (x86 and sparc)
* with GHC 6.2.2
* with Gtk+ 2.4.14 and 2.6.1
There are few improvements for non-Windows users, so if you've already
got 0.9.7 working there is no need to upgrade.
The release will be announced to the haskell and haskell-libs lists in
a couple days time. This is to give us a chance to do a bit more
last-minute testing and time to upload a binary package for Gtk+ 2.6.
Here is the announcement that will be sent:
Gtk2Hs - A Haskell GUI library based on the Gtk+ GUI Toolkit.
Version 0.9.7.1 is now available from:
This release is only needed for Windows users. If you have version 0.9.7
working there is no need to upgrade.
Source and binary packages are available for Windows.
There are binary packages for Gtk+ 2.4.x and 2.6.x.
Both packages require GHC 6.2.2.
You may wish to use Gtk+ 2.6 since it follows the Windows native look
and themes whereas Gtk+ 2.4 did not.
Installation on Windows is fairly straightforward. There is an installer
for Gtk+ on Windows and installing Gtk2Hs just involves unzipping and
running a batch file. Instructions are here:
For future Gtk2Hs releases we hope to provide an MSI installer to make
it even easier.
Changes since 0.9.7.1:
* build fixes for Windows
* almost all modules now carry LGPL 2.1 license
* a couple of extra functions are now bound
Other changes since the last release announcement:
* a complete website redesign
* many new screenshots:
* packages of version 0.9.7 are available for Gentoo and FreeBSD
