Hello from CamHac! The Snap team is happy to announce the release of Snap 0.5.3, a bugfix release of the Snap Framework.

New features

  • The hint dynamic reloading feature is now optional in the snap package; you can pass “-f-hint” to “cabal install snap” to disable hint support.

Incompatible/breaking changes

  • The snap-server SSL backend has been changed from GnuTLS to OpenSSL. To build a snap-server with SSL support, you must now run cabal install snap-server -fopenssl instead of -fgnutls.

  • In FileUploads.hs, “maximumFormInputSize” has been changed from Int to Int64.

Dependency changes

  • Several tweaks to dependencies to get Snap building on GHC 7.2; many thanks to Herbert Valerio Riedel and Bryan O’Sullivan for contributing these patches.

  • Updated, Aug 14, 2011: Now that GHC 7.2 has been released, Snap 0.5.3 now requires base >= 4.3, meaning that it only works with GHC 7 and above. (We try to support the 2 most recent GHC versions.) Uploaded Snap to fix the broken dependency.
