There is not a Happstack 8 branch -- nor is their likely to be. Things
are largely decoupled and improved incrementally -- so there is not a
need to have a special unstable branch -- instead things are released
as they are done.
That said -- there are some new things that are/will be appearing.
There is a new backend slated, which will be here:
Though what is there is not really of interest at the moment. There
will be a series of blog posts coming out shortly that will discuss a
bunch of the design decisions for the new backend. That way people can
complain before it has any users to disrupt :)
There is also work on a modern replacement for
plugins/plugins-auto/happstack-plugins that uses ghc-api+fsnotify.
(This allows automatic recompilation and reloading of code into a
running server -- which speeds up development time).
A lot of recent effort has been focused on updating The Happstack Book:
And also making improvements to clckwrks:
hyperdrive was delayed a long time waiting for pipes to stabilize.
But, things are looking good with pipes now, so hyperdrive will be
bumped up in priority after the new plugins stuff is done.
