This is the latest release of Hugs. Some binary packages aren't available yet: if what you're looking for isn't here, try the previous release.
For use on machines running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
This installer relies on the Windows Installer runtime to operate (included by default with Windows XP and later.) If double-clicking on the MSI file doesn't start up the installer, the likely cause is that you don't have the runtime installed on your machine. Redistributables of the runtime can be downloaded from Microsoft -- Windows 95, 98 and ME version, Windows NT, 2000 version. Try installing the appropriate version before double-clicking again on the downloaded MSI file.
See the file `Install' included in the bundle for instructions on building and installing Hugs. On some systems, some of the library modules using the FFI may fail to compile: please report the bug, but the rest (all the Haskell 98 modules and much more) should still work.
Please do not send direct mail to the authors or maintainers of Hugs if one of the above addresses would be more appropriate. We do read these mailing lists --- but so do many other people, who might be able to give you more appropriate or timely advice than us!
For brave souls who wish to experiment with Hugs as it develops, the sources are available from a public CVS repository email@example.com:/cvs. What you'll find there is under construction, and may break in interesting ways. You can also monitor the changes through a web interface.
There is some more information on using the Haskell CVS repository in the CVS cheat sheet in the GHC documentation. Once you've set things up as described there, the steps to build from CVS are:
Please report any bugs in the CVS version to firstname.lastname@example.org, which also carries commit messages and development discussion.
We also occasionally make available snapshot source distributions (which include the libraries). These require fewer tools to build than the CVS version, and have had some testing, but may not be as stable as major releases.
