Hi!
 
First of all - Thank you very much doing Gtk2Hs! It is much appreciated.
 
I did not look into the details of this announcement i.e. the Windows specific part. I was happy that there was Cairo SVG support since that matched perfectly a project I have just started.
 
Naturally I quite rapidly understood that the Cairo SVG support was not included in the Windows installation.
 
I'm not very much into finding the right stuff (MSYS, MingW, correct libraries), building everything with all the correct oprions & in the end get the desired result. It is a bit beyond what is healthy for me ;-)) 
 
Is there a possibility that there could be 2 installation downloads for Windows?
- One small (as now)
- One containing everything that is possible to build for Windows
 
At least I would be greatful.
 
All the best
Pär-Anders

The release announcement below will be sent to the Haskell mailing
lists, the gnome-announce list and added to the web site in a couple
days time.

If you package Gtk2Hs for a distro and manage to get a package built in
time then please tell me and I will mention your package in the release
announcement.

If there's anything wrong or missing from this release announcement then
please tell me so I can fix it before distributing it more widely.

Changes since 0.9.10:
* works with GHC-6.6 and Gtk+ 2.10.x
* new typed tree/list widget API
* new OpenGL widget added
* new cairo SVG package (for rendering SVG images on cairo
surfaces)
* new implementation of the Graphics.SOE API
* new glade tutorial
* many more demo programs (clock, graph, traffic congestion sim,
fonts, noughts & crosses, opengl, svg and updated profile viewer
and other tree/list demos)
* much smaller binaries (thanks to the ghc 'split objs' feature)
* many bugs fixed
* new functions for working with the threaded RTS
* various minor documentation improvements

Gtk2Hs feature highlights:
* automatic memory management
* Unicode support
* nearly full coverage of Gtk+ 2.8 API
* support for several additional Gtk+/Gnome modules:
* Glade visual GUI builder
* cairo vector graphics library
* SVG rendering for cairo
* OpenGL extension (works with HOpenGL)
* GConf, Gnome's system for storing app preferences
* SourceView, code editor widget with syntax highlighting
* the Mozilla browser rendering engine in a widget
* an implementation of the Graphics.SOE API
* extensive haddock API reference documentation
* multi-platform support with native look
* LGPL licence

Platforms and requirements:
* packages are now available for Windows, {your platform here!}
* packages for other platforms should become available soon
* builds from source on Linux, Windows, MacOS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD
and Solaris
* builds with GHC 6.2 - 6.6
* works with Gtk+ version 2.0 through to 2.10
* SVG support requires librsvg version 2.16 or later

Please report all problems to gtk2hs-devel@so...
Contributions and feedback are also most welcome.


Windows release notes:
The installer expects GHC 6.6 or 6.4.2. Support for GHCi is only
available with GHC-6.6. Profiling libs are included (though you do not
need to install them if you want to save disk space)

The installer now comes bundled with Gtk+ itself so there's no need to
download it separately. Hopefully this should also make the installation
process a bit more reliable if only by reducing the number of
configuration combinations.

The windows build doesn't include the svgcairo, sourceview, gconf or
mozembed packages since they introduce rather a large number of
dependencies and would make the installer a much bigger download.
