Subject: ANNOUNCE: HaTeX 3 - First release
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cafe

Hello, folks!

I have just released HaTeX 3 to Hackage:

http://hackage.haskell.org/HaTeX

It is a first version, not well documented yet, but now you can test it
with
a simple "cabal install hatex".

What is HaTeX?
HaTeX consists in a set of combinators which allow you to build LaTeX code,
following the LaTeX syntax in a type-safe manner. This allows you to build
programs which generates LaTeX code automatically for any purpose you can
figure out.

Further reading about HaTeX 3:

* http://deltadiaz.blogspot.com/2011/09/hatex-3-previous-notes.html
* http://deltadiaz.blogspot.com/2011/10/hatex-3-two-styles.html

I wanted to make the release before end the proper documentation because:
1) This allow people to test the library (and hence, help me to build the
documentation if any feedback comes).
2) I am too busy currently and I can't expend to HaTeX the time I'd like.

The library may need some improvements, but it worked well for my own
tests.

With HaTeX, I uploaded the HaTeX-meta package. This package is needed if
you
want to develope a subset of the HaTeX modules, because they are
automatically generated by this application. Anyway, there are notes in the
API reference warning this. HaTeX-meta in Hackage:

http://hackage.haskell.org/HaTeX-meta

A continously updated version of the source code from these packages can be
found at:

Thanks for reading,
Daniel Díaz.
