  • v1.1 Changes

    • ➕ Adds a church-encoded State carrier in Control.Carrier.State.Church. (#363)

    • ➕ Adds a church-encoded Error carrier in Control.Carrier.Error.Church. (#203)

    • ➕ Adds a church-encoded Empty carrier in Control.Carrier.Empty.Church. (#203)

    • ➕ Adds a church-encoded Writer carrier in Control.Carrier.Writer.Church. (#369)

    • ➕ Adds a church-encoded Fresh carrier in Control.Carrier.Fresh.Church. (#373)

    • Defines Algebra instances for Control.Monad.Trans.Maybe.MaybeT, Control.Monad.Trans.RWS.CPS, and Control.Monad.Trans.Writer.CPS. (#366)

    • ➕ Adds evalEmpty and execEmpty handlers for the Empty carriers as conveniences for using empty to signal early returns. (#371)

    Backwards-incompatible changes

    • 🔄 Changes alg’s signature, giving it an initial state, and a distributive law which must be applied to each computation in the signature. This change allows Algebra instances to be derived using GeneralizedNewtypeDeriving and DerivingVia, while also obviating the need for hmap, handleCoercible, or the thread method of Effect. This furthermore increases the expressiveness of effects, allowing effects with higher-order positions yielding concrete types, e.g. m (), to be run anywhere in the stack, not just above any Effect-requiring algebras. (#359, #361)

    • 🔄 Changes the signatures of runInterpret and runInterpretState analogously; also reorders the parameters to runInterpretState to take the signature before the state parameter. (#359)

    • ✂ Removes Algebra’s superclass constraint requiring a HFunctor instance for the signature. (#359)

    • ✂ Removes handleCoercible. Algebras which formerly used it when handling the tail of the signature may now compose coerce onto the homomorphism passed to alg. (#359)

    • ✂ Removes HFunctor. Effects are no longer required to have HFunctor instances, and so the class is redundant. (#359)

    • Removes Effect. The new signature for alg (see above) obviates the need for threading handlers through effects, replacing that by threading them through algebras instead. (#361)

    • Redefines thread as a wrapper around alg, composing context functors and distributive laws together. (Note that its type has also changed to take the context last and to decompose the handler for the two carriers.) (#361)

    • 📇 Renames Control.Effect.Interpret.Handler to Interpreter. (#361)

    • Reorders the parameters to the higher-order function passed to Control.Effect.Lift.liftWith for consistency with alg and to reflect its purpose of lifting Kleisli arrows in some underlying monad into the context modulo the context’s state. (#361)

    • Redefines all effects as GADTs. Since we no longer require Functor, HFunctor, or Effect instances, we no longer need to use continuations to allow distinct result types per constructor. Algebra instances for these effects can be ported forwards by removing the continuations. User-defined effects are not impacted, but we recommend migrating to GADT definitions of them for convenience and ease of comprehension going forwards. (#365)

    • ✂ Removes Control.Carrier.State.Lazy.runStateC, which was supposed to have been removed in 1.0.

  • v1.0.2.2 Changes

    June 16, 2020
    • ➕ Adds support for ghc 8.10 & base 4.14. (#376)
  • v1.0.2.1

    June 16, 2020
  • v1.0.2.0 Changes

    March 03, 2020
    • ➕ Adds a state operation for the State effect. (#353)

    • ➕ Adds a function reassociating sums leftwards to Control.Effect.Sum. (#354)

    • Inlines inj. (#354)

    • ➕ Adds labelled effects in Control.Effect.Labelled. Labelled effects allow flexible disambiguation and dependency for parametric effects, enabling better type inference, restricted usage, and associated type parameters. (#354)

    • ➕ Adds labelled interface for Reader and State effects in Control.Effect.Reader.Labelled and Control.Effect.State.Labelled. The functions in this interface are identical to their parent effect save that they accept a label parameter as an explicit type argument, suitable for use with an explicit type application; this can clean up code that would otherwise need an invocation of runUnderLabel to associate a labelled operation with its label. (#354)

    • ➕ Adds a sendIO operation for the Lift IO effect. (#360)

    • Inlines the Reader operations. (#347)

  • v1.0.0.1 Changes

    February 04, 2020
    • ➕ Adds passthrough Algebra instances for Ap and Alt, allowing the invocation of effects inside these structures without extraneous constructor applications.
  • v1.0.0.0 Changes

    November 11, 2019
    • ➕ Adds an Empty effect, modelling nondeterminism without choice (#196).

    • ➕ Adds an EmptyC carrier for Empty. (#196)

    • ➕ Adds a Choose effect, modelling nondeterminism without failure (#198).

    • ➕ Adds a Throw effect, modelling failure with a value. (#247)

    • ➕ Adds a Catch effect which can be used with Throw (or other kinds of failure) to model recoverable failure. (#247)

    • ➕ Adds a oneOf function to Control.Effect.NonDet to provide an idiom for the common case of nondeterministically selecting from a container. (#201)

    • ➕ Adds a foldMapA function to Control.Effect.NonDet mapping containers into nondeterministic computations using a supplied function. (#204)

    • Defines a new Has constraint synonym, conveniently combining Carrier and Member constraints and used for all effect constructors. (#217)

    • 👍 Allows effects to be defined and handled as sums of other effects, while still using the constructors for the component effects. This has been used to redefine NonDet as a sum of Empty and Choose, and Error as a sum of Throw and Catch. (#199, #219, #247)

    • Defines Carrier instances for a number of types in base, including Either, Maybe, [], and IO. (#206)

    • Defines Carrier instances for a number of types in transformers. (#226)

    • Defines an evalFresh handler for Control.Carrier.Strict.FreshC, taking the initial value. (#267)

    Backwards-incompatible changes

    • 💅 Renames the Carrier class to Algebra and its eff method to alg, and moved the responsibilities of Control.Carrier to Control.Algebra. This makes the library more consistent with the literature and encourages a style of naming that focuses on morphisms rather than objects. (#285, #294)

    • 🛠 Fixes unlawful behaviour in the Applicative instance for ErrorC, which had different behaviour between <*> and ap in the presence of a divergent rhs. In order to accomplish this, ErrorC has been defined as a wrapper around Control.Monad.Trans.Except.ExceptT. (#228)

    • 👌 Improves the performance of runInterpret using reflection, changing its signature slightly (#193, h/t @ocharles).

    • ✂ Removes Control.Effect.Random (and the dependencies on random & MonadRandom) in favour of a new fused-effects-random package (#200).

    • ✂ Removes fmap' and handlePure, both deprecated in (#205).

    • Redefines NonDetC as a Church-encoded binary tree instead of a Church-encoded list (#197).

    • ✂ Removes the OnceC carrier for Cull effects, replacing it with the composition of CullC on some other Alternative carrier, e.g. NonDetC (#204).

    • 🚚 Moves all the carriers into their own modules in the Control.Carrier namespace. Several have also been renamed, e.g. the various Trace carriers are all named TraceC within their separate modules, and should be imported qualified if disambiguation is required. This simplifies naming schemes, and ensures that the choice of e.g. strict or lazy carrier is always made consciously and expliclty, instead of defaulting to whichever is exported by the effect module (#204).

    • ✂ Removes the re-export of Member from all carrier modules, re-exporting Has in its place. Has constraints should generally be used instead, and specialist cases can import Control.Effect.Sum for Member. (#217)

    • Redesigns & renames the handlers for church-encoded nondeterminism carriers to standardize naming and usage patterns. (#207)

      • The primary handlers (runChoose, runNonDet, runCut, runCull) take multiple continuations.
      • Handlers which return an Alternative are suffixed with A, e.g. runNonDetA.
      • Handlers which return a Monoid are suffixed with M, e.g. runNonDetM.
      • Handlers which return a Semigroup are suffixed with S, e.g. runChooseS.
    • ✂ Removes InterposeC & runInterpose due to their inefficiency. They can be replaced with use of InterpretC/runInterpret for the desired effect. (#223)

    • ✂ Removes prj from Member, as it was only used in InterposeC (see above), and was generally inadvisable due to its lack of modularity. (#223)

    • ✂ Removes the Resource effect and carrier. Both have been relocated to fused-effects-exceptions. (#268)

    • Redefines Fail as a synonym for Throw String. (#247)

    • ✂ Removes Resumable and its carriers. Both have been relocated to fused-effects-resumable; they can also be usefully and flexibly replaced by arbitrary effects, Lift, and InterpretC. (#269)

    • 🔄 Changes Control.Carrier.Fresh.Strict.runFresh to take and return the initial & final values, respectively, allowing for safer operation. (#267)

    • Removes resetFresh, as it was unsafe. Greater safety and control over the generation of fresh values can be obtained by use of runFresh. (#267)

    • ✂ Removes PureC; Data.Functor.Identity.Identity should be used instead. Note that run is still provided as a convenient synonym for runIdentity. (#307)

    • ✂ Removes the Pure effect. It’s unlikely that this will require changes, as Pure had no operations, but Lift Identity should be used instead. (#307)

    • 👻 Redefines the Lift effect, allowing inner contexts to run actions in outer contexts, e.g. to interoperate with Control.Exception. (#306)

    • ✂ Removes MonadUnliftIO instances as they’ve been subsumed by the new definition of Lift. Additionally, the ReaderT & IdentityT types defined in transformers may be useful. (#306)

  • v0.5.0.1 Changes

    September 02, 2019
    • ➕ Adds support for ghc 8.8.1.
  • v0.5.0.0 Changes

    July 15, 2019
    • Derives Generic1 instances for all non-existentially-quantified effect datatypes.

    • Derives Foldable & Traversable instances for :+:.

    • Defines MonadFix instances for all of the carriers.

    • Re-exports run, :+:, and Member from Control.Effect.Carrier, reducing the number of imports needed when defining new effects.

    • Re-exports Carrier, Member, and run from the various effect modules, reducing the number of imports needed when using existing effects.

    Backwards-incompatible changes

    • 🚚 Replaces runResource with an equivalent function that uses MonadUnliftIO to select the correct unlifting function (a la withResource, which is removed in favor of runResource).

    • 🔄 Changes the signature of eff from sig m (m a) -> m a to sig m a -> m a, requiring effects to hold m k in their continuation positions instead of merely k. This was done in order to improve interoperability with other presentations of higher-order syntax, e.g. bound; syntax used with bound can now be given HFunctor and Carrier instances.

    To upgrade effects used with previous versions, change any continuations from k to m k. If no existential type variables appear in the effect, you can derive Generic1, and thence HFunctor & Effect instances. Otherwise, implement the required instances by hand. Since continuation positions now occur in m, hmap definitions will have to apply the higher-order function to these as well.

    • ➕ Adds Functor constraints to hmap and Monad constraints to handle, allowing a greater variety of instances to be defined (e.g. for recursively-nested syntax).

    • 0️⃣ Replaces the default definitions of hmap and handle with derivations based on Generic1 instead of Coercible. Therefore, first-order effects wishing to derive these instances will require Generic1 instances, presumably derived using -XDeriveGeneric.

    • 🚚 Moves send from Control.Effect.Sum to Control.Effect.Carrier. Likewise removes the re-export of send from Control.Effect.

    • 🗄 Deprecates fmap' in favour of fmap.

    • 🗄 Deprecates handlePure in favour of hmap.

  • v0.4.0.0 Changes

    May 13, 2019

    Backwards-incompatible changes

    • ✂ Removes APIs deprecated in, including Eff, interpret, ret, and the handle* family of helper functions.

    Other changes

    • ➕ Adds the ability to derive default instances of HFunctor and Effect for first-order effects, using the -XDeriveAnyClass extension.
    • ➕ Adds a generic Interpose effect that enables arbitrary "eavesdropping" on other effects.
  • v0.3.1.0 Changes

    April 24, 2019
    • 👌 Improved speed of Reader, State, Writer, and Pure effects by defining and inlining auxiliary Applicative methods.
    • ➕ Adds runInterpret & runInterpretState handlers in Control.Effect.Interpret as a convenient way to experiment with effect handlers without defining a new carrier type and Carrier instance. Such handlers are somewhat less efficient than custom Carriers, but allow for a smooth upgrade path when more efficiency is required.
    • ➕ Added unliftio-core as a dependency so as to provide a blessed API for unlift-style effects and a solution to the cubic-caller problem.
