## Changelog for blaze-builder-0.4.1.0

* 0.4.1.0 - Gain compatibility with the Semigroup/Monoid proposal - Add Word8 HTML escaping builders - Speed up fromHtmlEscapedText and fromHtmlEscapedLazyText * 0.4.0.2 - Fixed warnings on GHC 7.10, courtesy of Mikhail Glushenkov. * 0.4.0.1 - Tightened the version constraints on the bytestring package for GHC 7.8 * 0.4.0.0 - This is now a compatibility shim for the new bytestring builder. Most of the old internal modules are gone. See this blog post for more information: <http://blog.melding-monads.com/2015/02/12/announcing-blaze-builder-0-4/> - The 'Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Html.Utf8.fromHtmlEscaped*' functions now strip out any ASCII control characters present in their inputs. See <https://github.com/lpsmith/blaze-builder/issues/1> for more information. * 0.3.3.0 - exposed the 'Buffer' constructor to enable keeping around a pool of buffers. * 0.3.2.0 - added 'writeToByteString' to construct a strict bytestring in a single step. We can actually view 'Write's as strict-bytestring builders. * 0.3.1.1 - Changed imports of Foreign.Unsafe to make it GHC 7.8 compatible - -Wall clean on GHC 7.0 - 7.6 * 0.3.1.0 - Widened dependencies on text and bytestring * 0.3.0.1 - Fix build warning in Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Word (contributed by Greg Weber) * 0.3.0.1 - Remove comparison to the 'text' library encoding functions of 'Blaze.Builder.Char.Utf8.fromText' and 'Blaze.Builder.Char.Utf8.fromLazyText'. Bryan O'Sullivan reported that on his 64-bit system with GHC 7.0.3 the 'text' library is 5x faster than the 'blaze-builder' library. * 0.3.0.0 - Renamings in internal modules: WriteIO -> Poke and associated functions. * 0.2.1.4 - Fixed bug: appending to 'chunkedTransferEncoding somebuilder' also encoded the appended builder, which is obviously wrong. * 0.2.1.3 - Fixed bug: 'chunkedTransferTerminator' is now correctly set to "0\r\n\r\n". * 0.2.1.2 - Add 'MonoPatBinds' language extension to all relevant files to solve the issues caused by GHC bug http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4498 * 0.2.1.1 - Reexport 'Write' datatype and 'fromWriteList', 'fromWriteSingleton', 'fromWrite' functions together with writes and builders for storables. - Add 'MonoPatBinds' language extension to (hopefully) solve the issues caused by GHC bug http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4498 * 0.2.1.0 Incorporated several design changes: - Writable buffer range is now represented in a packed form. This improves speed slightly, as less currying is used. - Writes are abstracted such that their internal representation can be exchanged without breaking other library code. - Writes are represented in a form that allows for efficient monoid instances for branching code like UTF-8 encoding. For single character encoding this results currently in a slight slowdown due to GHC not recognizing the strictness of the returned value. This will be fixed in the future. - BuildSteps support returning a result in Done, which enables to implement a Put monad using CPS. - chunked list writes were removed, as they result in worse performance when writing non-trivial lists. (cf. benchmarks) - An internal buffering abstraction is introduced, which is used both by the adaption of the binary package, as well as by the blaze-builder-enumeratee package, to execute puts and builders. It will be used later also by the execution functions of the blaze-builder package. Implemented new functionality - Blaze.ByteString.Builder.HTTP provides a builder transformer for doing in-buffer chunked HTTP encoding of an arbitary other builder. - Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Char8 provides functions to serialize the lower 8-bits of characters similiar to what Data.ByteString.Char8 provides for bytestrings. * 0.2.0.3 Loosen 'text' dependency to '>= 0.10 && < 0.12' * 0.2.0.2 Fixed bug: use &#39; instead of &apos; for HTML escaping ' * 0.2.0.1 Added a missing benchmark file. * blaze-builder-0.2.0.0 Heavily restructured 'blaze-builder' such that 'Blaze.ByteString.Builder' serves as a drop-in replacement of 'binary:Data.Binary.Builder' which it improves upon with respect to both speed as well as expressivity. See the documentation and the benchmarks for details on improvements and new functionality. Changed module structure: Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Core -> Blaze.ByteString.Builder Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Utf8 -> Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Char.Utf8 Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Html -> Blaze.ByteString.Builder.Html.Utf8 Changed function names: writeByte -> writeWord8 fromByte -> fromWord8 fromWriteList -> fromWrite1List Possibly performance sensitive implementation changes: - 'fromByteString' and 'fromLazyByteString' check now if a direct insertion of the bytestring(s) would be cheaper than copying it. See their documentation on how to recover the old behaviour. Deprecated functions: 'empty' : use 'mempty' instead 'singleton': use 'fromWord8' instead 'append' : use 'mappend' instead * blaze-builder-0.1 This is the first version of 'blaze-builder'. It is explicitely targeted at fast generation of UTF-8 encoded HTML documents in the 'blaze-html' and the 'hamlet' HTML templating libraries.
