    It looks like that change is on github, but the version wasn't bumped, nor was it pushed to hackage https://github.com/nick8325/quickspec/blob/master/quickspec.cabal Perhaps try using github as the source instead of hackage?

    Quickspec (https://github.com/nick8325/quickspec) is awesome in discovering laws in the code we write. But I am in search for a tool (the reverse) , which given the spec, can it synthesise code ?
