Today is the first anniversary of GNU Guile 2.0 [0].  To celebrate it,
while some were doing serious work on Guile itself, several hackers took
on the challenge to come up in one week with a neat hack to showcase
Guile integration [1].

This challenge led to a few birthday hacks (and probably some that
didn’t meet the deadline):

  • Ian Price quickly came up with GDBM bindings, written with Guile’s
    dynamic foreign function interface (FFI):

  • Nala Ginrut wrote BIG, for “Bash Inner Guile”, which extends Bash
    with the ability to evaluate Scheme expressions:

  • Mike Gran polished his port of GNU Zile to Guile:

    Shortly after, he released a new version, along with an
    implementation of Tetris in Scheme that uses GNU Guile-Ncurses:

  • Ludovic Courtès brought Guile-GCC, which allows GCC to be extended
    in Guile: <>.

Happy birthday Guile 2.0, and happy GNU hacking!
