1.1 [2019.09.26]

  • Generalize the type of _JSON from Prism' t a to Prism t t a b. If you wish to continue to use the less general type, use the newly added _JSON' prism.
  • Add pattern synonyms corresponding to the Prisms that lens-aeson provides.
  • Fix the test suite on 32-bit architectures.


  • Support doctest-0.12


  • Revamp Setup.hs to use cabal-doctest. This makes it build with Cabal-2.0, and makes the doctests work with cabal new-build and sandboxes.

  • Fix tests to work against vector-0.11
  • Documentation fixes
  • No functional changes since

  • Move lens upper bound to < 5 like the other packages in the family


  • Module migrated from lens package to Data.Aeson.Lens


  • Added members and values


  • Broadened dependencies


  • Repository initialized
