+ HSX11 1.00
+ A Haskell binding for X11
+
+In preparation for a major release of HSX11, we are making an alpha
+release for folk to play with. We welcome bug reports, comments on
+how the system is packaged, the web page, examples, comments from
+those who build binary and source packages, etc. and especially
+welcome comments accompanied by patches or cvs commit messages.

We are pleased to announce a new release of the Haskell binding for
X11 which provides a binding to most of Xlib. The library is
distributed as open source.
-The library can be downloaded from: http://www.haskell.org/packages/.

+
+ps Though they are really independent issues, it is worth
+noting two other things about this release:
+
+1) We have created a page http://www.haskell.org/packages which
+ contains a list of Haskell packages and acts as a 'homepage' for
+ packages like this that are too small to justify a full homepage.
+ Please feed this page.
+
+2) This release is based on the GHC team's fptools infrastructure
+ which is evolving in the direction of supporting packages like this
+ one. We welcome comments on this infrastructure and, especially,
+ offers to help make it better.
