Extensible Effects  An Alternative to Monad TransformersExtensible Effects  An Alternative to Monad Transformers, by Oleg Kiselyov, Amr Sabry and Cameron Swords:
A followup to Oleg's delimited continuation adaptation of Cartwright and Felleisen's work on Extensible Denotational Language Specifications, which is a promising alternative means of composing effects to the standard monad transformers. This work embeds a userextensible effect EDSL in Haskell by encoding all effects into a single effect monad using a novel open union type and the continuation monad. The encoding is very similar to recent work on Algebraic Effects and Handlers, and closely resembles a typed clientserver interaction ala coroutines. This seems like a nice convergence of the topics covered in the algebraic effects thread and other recent work on effects, and it's more efficient than monad transformers to boot.
