ANN: Graphics.Rendering.Diagrams 0.1

Brent Yorgey
Hi all!

I am very pleased to announce the release of Graphics.Rendering.Diagrams, an embedded domain-specific language for creating simple pictures and diagrams, built on top of the Cairo vector graphics library.  It's still somewhat in its infancy, but already beginning to be useful and I wanted to get something released as soon as possible.

More info and examples here: http://byorgey.wordpress.com/2008/04/30/new-haskell-diagrams-library/

Download the package here: http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/diagrams-0.1

If it looks interesting to you, please give it a try, report bugs, request features, and so on.  If it looks too simplistic to be of use to you -- just wait for a future version!  I've got tons of ideas for features.  If you're interested in contributing, I'll have a darcs repo up (most likely at http://code.haskell.org/diagrams/) as soon as someone creates a directory for me on code.haskell.org.

Enjoy!
-Brent

A quick update: thanks to Duncan Coutts, there is now a public darcs repository for diagrams: http://code.haskell.org/diagrams/.  If you're interested in contributing some code, do a darcs get, and get hacking!  Well, except it would be nice if you discuss with me first what you're thinking of doing. =)  If enough people are interested, I can set up a mailing list or something.
