EclipseFP is going to be reloaded

Great news: Thomas ten Cate has started a Google Summer of Code project to extend EclipseFP functionality. So there will be some activity on the Haskell IDE front again :-) Of course I'm thrilled that EclipseFP will get some overhaul, but Thomas plans also to integrate GHC via scion, an IDE support library. This is an important step towards an IDE core, written in Haskell, that can be used in other development environments (apart from Eclipse/EclipseFP), and so make it easier to spread good Haskell support in a variety of tools.

Thomas has created a blog about this project at

Good luck Thomas, and thanks for this initiative :-)
