Gtk2Hs 0.9.12 released

Gtk2Hs version 0.9.12 is now available from:

The source tarball and an installer for Windows are available. Packages for various platforms should become available soon, hopefully including Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, FreeBSD and Darwin.

Changes since 0.9.11:

  • ps, pdf and svg cairo backends are now supported
  • drag & drop support added
  • can run mainGUI in GHCi after :reload
  • Graphics.SOE.Gtk now works with threaded rts and GHCi
  • Windows build now includes OpenGL and SourceView packages
  • c2hs no longer chokes on some system headers (eg glibc-2.4)
  • various bug fixes and minor code cleanups
  • major overhaul of the code generator (will help binding Gtk+ 2.10)

    Congrats on getting the SOE/threaded rts/GHCI problems fixed. That seemed to be a barrier for new users. Keep up the good work!

    Oooh, that’s sweet, I’ve been missing that one.

    Of course, right now I’m missing my GTK apps, because I can’t seem to get gtk2hs to work on my Mandriva Spring 2007 x86-64. GHC 6.6.1 (from rpm), compiled and installed gtk2hs from source with yes on all options except mozembed. Program loads in ghci and everything appears fine until I run main, then I get

    (:3764): libglade-WARNING **: unknown widget class ‘GtkAboutDialog’
    *** Exception: Cannot cast object to Dialog

    This is so weird, I’m at a loss where to start figuring out this one. Have they actually removed GtkAboutDialog in my version of GTK? hmmmmm…..

    I’ve been trying to run the SOE demos in GHCi (..Gtk2Hs\demos\soe\), and while they seem to compile, an error is generated when I try running them. However, I can compile them (”ghc –make *.hs”) and run the exe’s from the cmd line (all this in Windows XP).

    Hi, I’ve tried gtk2hs 9.11 with Ubuntu some months ago, but now, in Arch Linux (gcc 4.2.2) it doesn’t compile!

    Ahh, I need Haskel!

    We’ll shortly be doing a point release to fix some compilation issues with recent versions of glib and so it’ll build with ghc-6.8. It’ll also include the latest SOE code.
