Changelog for text-18.104.22.168
The Data.Data instance now allows gunfold to work, via a virtual pack constructor
dropEnd, takeEnd: new functions
Comparing the length of a Text against a number can now short-circuit in more cases
- streamDecodeUtf8: fixed gh-70, did not return all unconsumed bytes in single-byte chunks
encodeUtf8: Performance is improved by up to 4x.
encodeUtf8Builder, encodeUtf8BuilderEscaped: new functions, available only if bytestring >= 0.10.4.0 is installed, that allow very fast and flexible encoding of a Text value to a bytestring Builder.
As an example of the performance gain to be had, the encodeUtf8BuilderEscaped function helps to double the speed of JSON encoding in the latest version of aeson! (Note: if all you need is a plain ByteString, encodeUtf8 is still the faster way to go.)
All of the internal module hierarchy is now publicly exposed. If a module is in the .Internal hierarchy, or is documented as internal, use at your own risk - there are no API stability guarantees for internal modules!
- decodeUtf8: Fixed a regression that caused us to incorrectly identify truncated UTF-8 as valid (gh-61)
Added support for Unicode 6.3.0 to case conversion functions
New function toTitle converts words in a string to title case
New functions peekCStringLen and withCStringLen simplify interoperability with C functionns
Added support for decoding UTF-8 in stream-friendly fashion
Fixed a bug in mapAccumL
Added trusted Haskell support
Removed support for GHC 6.10 (released in 2008) and older
