User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/26.2 (gnu/linux)

We are thrilled to announce the release of GNU Guix 1.0.0!

This 1.0 release is a major milestone for Guix.  It represents 7 years
of hard work with more than 40,000 commits by 260 people, 19 releases,
and an equally amazing amount of work on documentation, translation,
artwork, web design, mentoring, outreach, and many other activities that
together have made it a thriving project.

Whether you’re a software developer, a user, or a free software
enthusiast, we hope GNU Guix will provide you with the tools to deploy
and manage software with confidence and ease, qualities that are not
usually associated with software deployment.  We’d love to hear from you!

• 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-1.0.0.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.
