Thanks to John Lato and Duncan Coutts for the latest bugfix release! The latest packages should be buildable on GHC 7.6, and the cairo package should behave a bit nicer in ghci on Windows. Thanks to all!

Today, we’re proud to announce the very first release of Gtk2Hs that comes in cabal packages. This means that installation is easier on all systems in that only the Gtk+ libraries have to be installed before a simple ‘cabal install gtk’ does the rest of the job. This even holds for Windows!
Duncan posted a patch that allows compilation of Gtk2Hs with ghc 6.12. However, you need to specify –disable-split-objs option when running configure as ghc 6.12 puts object files in directories where our Makefile does not expect them.
Gtk2HS 0.10.1 has been released! This release includes mostly bug fixes and other small improvements. Most notably, GHC 6.10.1 is now supported.
The source tarball may be downloaded from:
A Windows installer will be provided soon.
A note of caution: Using Gtk2Hs together with the -threaded ghc is currently not supported. The reason is that GHC’s garbage collector might free Xlib or Win32 objects using an OS thread different to the one that is used to execute all other Gtk+ functions. The result will be a program that occasionally fails with an Xlib error or a crash on Windows. We are working on fixing this.
