Subject: GNU Guile 2.0.5 released
Date: Mon, 30 Jan 2012 23:03:53 +0100
User-agent: Gnus/5.110018 (No Gnus v0.18) Emacs/24.0.90 (gnu/linux)

We are pleased to announce GNU Guile release 2.0.5.  This release fixes
the binary interface information (SONAME) of libguile, which was
incorrect in 2.0.4.  It does not contain other changes.

Please be sure to upgrade to 2.0.5 if you already installed 2.0.4.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Guile web page is located at .

Guile is an implementation of the Scheme programming language, with
support for many SRFIs, packaged for use in a wide variety of
environments.  In addition to implementing the R5RS Scheme standard and
a large subset of R6RS, Guile includes a module system, full access to
POSIX system calls, networking support, multiple threads, dynamic
linking, a foreign function call interface, and powerful string

Guile can run interactively, as a script interpreter, and as a Scheme
compiler to VM bytecode suitable for stand-alone applications.  It is
also packaged as a library so that applications can easily incorporate a
complete Scheme interpreter/VM.  An application can use Guile as an
extension language, a clean and powerful configuration language, or as
multi-purpose "glue" to connect primitives provided by the application.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify guile-2.0.5.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys EA52ECF4

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.68
  Automake 1.11.2
  Libtool 2.4
  Gnulib v0.0-6827-g39c3009

You can follow Guile development in the Git repository and on the Guile
mailing lists.  Guile builds from the `master' branch of Git have
version number 2.1.x.

Guile versions with an odd middle number, e.g., 2.1.*, are unstable
development versions.  Even middle numbers indicate stable versions.
This has been the case since the 1.3.* series.

Please report bugs to address@hidden'.  We also welcome reports of
successful builds, which can be sent to address@hidden'.

Ludovic, on behalf of the Guile team.
