ANN: yi-0.10.0 , the text editor written in Haskell

Hash: SHA1

We're glad to announce Yi 0.10.0. Yi is 10 years old today!

Our main repository is at [1]. Yi compiles with GHC 7.6.3 all the way
up to GHC 7.8.3.

There have been many changes since the latest Hackage release (0.8.2).
I inline the relevant part of the changelog at the bottom.

We are slowly trying to populate the documentation pages: we have
recently started using GitHub pages[2] for this purpose. Please have a
look!

On top of the issues listed in the changelog, a lot of issues were
closed separately. If you had a pending issue, please check the issue
tracker.

As always we're looking for contributors: we have tasks in just about
any area. Note that you don't even need to know Haskell to help us.

Visit us on #yi on Freenode: be prepared to stay for more than 5
minutes.

Installation instructions are available at [2]. If you're using nix,
Yi 0.10.0 will be packaged shortly.
