Submitted by jgoerzen on Tue, 11/29/2005 - 6:13am.

Greetings, and thanks for reading the 17th issue of HWN, a weekly newsletter for the Haskell community. Each Tuesday, new editions will be posted (as text) to the Haskell mailing list and (as HTML) to The Haskell Sequence.

Discussion

Monads in other languages. A very interesting thread covering availability of monads for other programming languages.

Haskell in higher education. John Hughes posted a survey aimed at those teaching Haskell in higher education.

GHC 6.6 progress. Jim Apple mentioned the wiki page on GHC 6.6.

GHC targetting Java. John Goerzen asked about the apparent support for a Java target in the GHC source tree. Simon Peyton-Jones noted that it is no longer supported.

Darcs Corner

P2P repositories. There was a lot of discussion on the Darcs lists about using a P2P network for storing Darcs information.
