Greetings, and thanks for reading the third 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.
HWN format changes this week. Based on reader feedback, the New Releases section has been moved to the top of HWN. Please let me know what you think. Before you ask, the Darcs and Quotes of the Week sections are missing because there was no news for them this week.
Static typing. Minh Thu started a discussion about the pros and cons of static typing and side effects.
Language version pragmas. Bulat Ziganshin proposed a way to specify what language version and options are used in Haskell sources.
Want to continue reading HWN? Please help us create new editions of this newsletter. Please see the contributing information, or send stories to hwn -at- complete -dot- org. There is also a Darcs repository available.
