Hi Ludovic,

Congratulations on the release.

Perhaps someone can update the website <> or 
which still has a DOWNLOAD 1.0.0 button.

On a related note, how come there are two versions of the official Guix website?
- (this one seems to be the most recent/updated one)
- or (this one seems to lag behind)

Is it possible to unify them somehow, perhaps? It would be less confusing for 
people searching
for Guix on Google or DuckDuckGo.

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Guix 1.0.1.

This is a bug-fix release primarily addressing one major issue in the
graphical installer of the standalone Guix system, as well as less
critical issues.

• About

   GNU Guix is a transactional package manager and an advanced
   distribution of the GNU system that respects user freedom.  Guix can
   be used on top of any system running the kernel Linux, or it can be
   used as a standalone operating system distribution for i686, x86_64,
   ARMv7, and AArch64 machines.

   In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports
   transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package
   management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  When used as a
   standalone GNU/Linux distribution, Guix offers a declarative,
   stateless approach to operating system configuration management.  Guix
   is highly customizable and hackable through Guile programming
   interfaces and extensions to the Scheme language.

[*] 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-1.0.1.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 3CE464558A84FDC69DB40CFB090B11993D9AEBB5
and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

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