+  - The GuixSD installation image is now [available as an ISO-9660
+    which can either be written to a USB stick or burnt on a DVD.
+    Previously we would only provide a USB stick image.  This was long

+  - Several user interface improvements, notably: [`guix

+    reality](!
+  - To make it easier for newcomers to get started defining packages,
+    there’s a new [`guix import
+    command that takes JSON-formatted package metadata as input and

+manager for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution or GuixSD is
+an advanced distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix and
+[respects the user's
+In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports
+transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management,
+per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  Guix uses low-level
+mechanisms from the Nix package manager, except that packages are
+defined as native [Guile]( modules,
+using extensions to the [Scheme]( language.  GuixSD
+offers a declarative approach to operating system configuration
+management, and is highly customizable and hackable.
+GuixSD can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.  It is also possible to
+use Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on
+mips64el, armv7, and aarch64.
