Updated HaL 3 program

A short update on the program for HaL 3 (Haskell in Leipzig), which I mentioned earlier: there are two more interesting talks on the agenda now - one about using Haskell in the software industry, the other on program verification for big software projects :-)

You can find the full updated announcement on the HaL3 website.

EclipseDarcs 0.4.1 available

A new build of EclipseDarcs is now available: version 0.4.1. You can get it as zipped update site from the SourceForge downloads area or directly using this update site location:

Thanks to Neil Bartlett's contribution, you can now directly select a Darcs executable from the Darcs preference page (Preferences > Team > Darcs). The plugin uses that executable then and doesn't rely on Darcs being on the PATH. There are also some minor robustness fixes in this build; mostly they smooth out things in situations where the plugin previously had written ugly messages to the workspace log. Have fun :-)

HaL 3 and EclipseFP Hackathon

There will be another Haskell in Leipzig (HaL) meeting on April 18th (a Friday) - this is the third already, so it seems to be developing into a nice tradition :-)

As at previous HaL events, Haskell IDEs are of some interest. Among other things, we'll hear a talk about Leksah, the new Haskell IDE which was recently announced in its first preview version. (For more info and the full program have a look at the HaL 3 website:

This time, there will also be a Hackathon weekend (April 19 and 20) with focus on EclipseFP and Cohatoe development :-) So if you don't have plans yet for that weekend (and are reasonably close to Leipzig ;-), why not drop by and have some fun?

The kick-off for the Hackathon will be on Friday evening as part of the HaL meeting. I've also set up a wiki at with an idea pool for possible features and some directions on getting started with EclipseFP development. Of course I'll keep you posted on what happened at the Hackathon :-)
