User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.5 (gnu/linux)

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Guix version 0.8.3,
representing 828 commits by 25 people over 2 months.

• About

  GNU Guix is a functional package manager for the GNU system.
  The Guix System Distribution is (GuixSD) an advanced distribution
  of the GNU system.

  In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports
  transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package
  management, and per-user profiles.  GuixSD offers a declarative
  approach to operating system configuration management and is highly
  hackable.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package
  manager, except that packages are defined as native Guile modules,
  using extensions to the Scheme language.

  The operating system uses the Linux-Libre kernel and the GNU dmd init
  system.  At this stage it can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.

  It is also possible to use Guix on top of an already installed
  GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and armv7.

  [*] 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 guix-0.8.3.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 3D9AEBB5

  and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
    Autoconf 2.69
    Automake 1.15
    Makeinfo 6.0
    Help2man 1.47.1

  To install the Guix System Distribution, please see “System
  Installation” in the manual.  To install Guix on a running
  system, see “Installation” in the manual.
