Gnus/5.130007 (Ma Gnus v0.7) Emacs/24.3 (gnu/linux)
We are pleased to announce GNU Guile release 2.0.11, the next maintenance
release for the 2.0.x stable series.
This release fixes a regression introduced in 2.0.10, which affects the
C functions to access SRFI-4 vectors.
The Guile web page is located at http://gnu.org/software/guile/ .
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-2.0.11.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 keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys EA52ECF4
and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
This release provides new interfaces, many bug fixes, and performance
improvements. Here are the highlights, taken from the `NEWS' file:

This release fixes an embarrassing regression introduced in the C
interface to SRFI-4 vectors. See
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 the same email address.
Ludovic, on behalf of the Guile team.
