We are pleased to announce GNU Guile release 2.9.8.  This is the eighth
and possibly final pre-release of what will eventually become the 3.0
release series.

Compared to the previous prerelease (2.9.7), Guile 2.9.8 fixes a bug in
libguile that caused writes to unmapped memory in some circumstances.
This problem manifested itself as a failure of Guile to compile itself
on some systems, notably Ubuntu 18.04 on x86-64.  It also fixes a couple
warnings related to SRFI-35.

make and make check verified to work on Ubuntu 18.08 / x86_64
