[Haskell-cafe] ANNOUNCE: Haddock 2.6.0

--------------------------------------------
-- Haddock 2.6.0
--------------------------------------------

A new version of Haddock, the Haskell documentation tool, is out!

This is the version that comes with GHC 6.12.1. It contains the main results of
Isaac Dupree's Summer of Code project, which are:

  * Cross-package documentation (exporting something that comes from another
    package is handled correctly. The full documentation of that thing shows
    up in your documentation)

  * Lexing and parsing of Haddock comment markup is moved from GHC back into
    Haddock. This will make it easier to make changes to the markup format

We have decided to drop compatibility with older GHC versions in order to speed
up development.

--------------------------------------------
-- Full list of changes in version 2.6.0
--------------------------------------------

  * Drop support for GHC 6.10.*

  * Add support for GHC 6.12.1

  * Cross-package documentation

  * Move lexing and parsing of the Haddock comment markup back to Haddock

  * Slightly prettier printing of instance heads

  * Support platforms for which GHC has no native code generator

  * Add a flag --print-ghc-libdir

  * Minor bug fixes
