Hackage Build Status

This provides a thin compatibility shim on top of transformers-0.2 to add the types that were added in transformers-0.3.

This enables users to maintain haskell-platform compatibility, while still gaining access ot the new functionality.

Changes

0.4.0.4

0.4.0.3

0.4.0.2

  • Each of these is a build with a different set of flags configured. Building this way allows us to work around bugs in cabal's backtracker.

0.4

  • Added support for the missing ExceptT instances from mtl.

    This was not done lightly. While this means that by default incurring a dependency on transformers-compat drags in mtl when you are using an old transformers, it means that users do not have to orphan these instances and permits wider adoption of ExceptT.

    If you absolutely can't stand mtl and really want this package to build as valid Haskell98, then you can use cabal install transformers-compat -f-mtl to avoid incurring the dependency to get these instances. However, that is effectively an unsupported configuration.

0.3.3.4

0.3.3.3

  • Each of these is a build with a different set of flags configured.
