ANNOUNCE: Alex version 3.0

I am pleased to announce version 3.0 of Alex, the lexical analyser
generator for Haskell.

Highlights in this release:

     * Unicode support (contributed mostly by Jean-Philippe Bernardy,
       with help from Alan Zimmerman, and using code from the ranged-sets
       package written by Paul Johnson).

     * Alex now does DFA minimization, which helps to reduce the size
       of the generated tables, especially for lexers that use Unicode.

More details in the release notes:

Alex can be obtained from Hackage

The master repository is now on github:

Alex is distributed under a BSD-style license.

Cheers,
	Simon
