Gtk2Hs 0.9.10 released

Saturday, November 5th, 2005

Gtk2Hs version 0.9.10 is now available from:

http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/download/

An installer for Windows is available. A package is available for Gentoo. Packages for other platforms should become available soon (hopefully including Fedora Core, Debian, Darwin, FreeBSD and OpenBSD).

Changes since version 0.9.9:

  • New bindings for the cairo vector graphics library. This provides a easy-to-use vector graphics API (using a PDF-style drawing model) with high quality output for multiple backends (screen, print and image files).
  • Completion of Pango, the text layout and rendering engine of Gtk+. We now provide all functions that end users should ever need for rendering text, ranging from type-setting whole paragraphs down to breaking up attributed text into several runs. All offsets into Haskell strings are transparently translated into UTF-8 offsets used in Pango, thereby alleviating much of the grief of dealing with Unicode.
  • new Gtk+ 2.8 APIs are bound
  • many bugs fixed
  • various minor documentation improvements
  • an installer for Windows is available again
  • the mozembed HTML rendering component can now be built against the FireFox libraries if the appropriate developer files are present.
