Measurement-related functionality extracted from Criterion, with minimal dependencies. The rationale for this is to enable alternative analysis front-ends.

Changes

0.1.1.0

Add nfAppIO and whnfAppIO functions, which take a function and its
argument separately like nf/whnf, but whose function returns IO like
nfIO/whnfIO. This is useful for benchmarking functions in which the bulk
of the work is not bound by IO, but by pure computations that might otherwise
be optimized away if the argument is known statically.

0.1.0.0

This is the first release of criterion-measurement. The changelog notes
below are copied from the notes for the corresponding criterion release,
criterion-1.5.0.0.

Move the measurement functionality of criterion into a standalone package,
criterion-measurement. In particular, cbits/ and Criterion.Measurement
are now in criterion-measurement, along with the relevant definitions of
Criterion.Types and Criterion.Types.Internal (both of which are now under
the Criterion.Measurement.* namespace).
Consequently, criterion now depends on criterion-measurement.

This will let other libraries (e.g. alternative statistical analysis
front-ends) to import the measurement functionality alone as a lightweight
dependency.

Fix a bug on macOS and Windows where using runAndAnalyse and other
lower-level benchmarking functions would result in an infinite loop.
