We are pleased to announce the GNU Shepherd version 0.3.2, a bug-fix

• About

  The GNU Daemon Shepherd or GNU Shepherd is a service manager written
  in Guile that looks after the herd of system services.  It provides a
  replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV-init (or any
  other init) with a dependency-based system with a convenient
  interface.  The GNU Shepherd may also be used by unprivileged users to
  manage per-user daemons (e.g., tor, privoxy, mcron, etc.)  It is
  written in Guile Scheme, and is configured and extended using Guile.

  The GNU Shepherd is developed jointly with the GNU Guix project; it is
  used as the init system of GuixSD, GNU’s advanced GNU/Linux distribution.

  Before this release, the GNU Shepherd was known as GNU dmd, the
  daemon-managing daemon.

  [*] 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 shepherd-0.3.2.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 

  and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
