Hello Guix!

I’ve run “make release” from the new ‘version-1.1.0’ branch and uploaded
the result:

Alternately (and preferably), you can get it over IPFS.

  ipfs ls QmeLSpj3bBV5vwieVqYkbarTxmbiiP2iAaaN6rzBPLqqRD
  ipfs get …

If you’ve never used IPFS before, first run:

  guix install go-ipfs
  ipfs init

All the files are signed with my key, also used to sign this message.

Please test things as much as you can, be it the binary installation
tarball on a “foreign” distro or the ISO image.  Once you’ve downloaded,
just follow the same instructions as before (if you want to use
‘’, you’ll have to adjust it to use the right tarball):

If you encounter an issue, please report it to address@hidden,
explaining what you did and what you observed.

Unlike rc1, this includes the i686 installation image and the VM image.
