NEWS excerpt follows.  Many thanks to Thi for his contributions to
this release, and to Alain Rouge for pushing me on the pixmaps front.


Changes since release 0.3

* Some pixmap-related primitives added

x-create-pixmap!, x-copy-area!, x-clear-area!, x-clear-window!

* Documentation created

guile-xlib now has Info documentation.

* added

The distribution now includes the script that the authors
use for bootstrapping the build before running ./configure.  This
means that you can now hack, etc. yourself,
and then run to propagate your changes into the rest of the

* (xlib core) module removed

This is an incompatible change, for which apologies, but it removes
complexity that we simply don't need.

All of guile-xlib's functionality is now imported by using just the
(xlib xlib) module.

* guile-xlib program removed

The only difference between guile-xlib and plain guile was the
deprecated usage of the scm_register_module_xxx interface.  Now that
this usage is no longer needed, there is no point in retaining

* Compilation compatibility for current and development Guiles

xlib.c has been enhanced so that it can be compiled under both current
stable (1.6.x) Guile and development CVS Guile.  I'd like to support
older Guiles as well (1.3.4, 1.4.x), but unfortunately I don't have
those handy to test against.
