Description (last modified by Patai Gergely)

We need a tool that does the following:

  • shows the API diffs between versions of a package
  • checks that the version number is being bumped properly
  • feeds back the information to Haddock, so that the docs can indicate eg. "added in version 1.2"

It could be built on top of the GHC API fairly easily. This would make a great SoC project, I think - it has few dependencies, and if the student finishes the basic functionality early, there's lots more that could be added to it.
