We are pleased to announce the availability of a new Guile release.
This is the next maintenance release for the 1.6 stable series.

You can find it here:

Guile is Project GNU's extension language library, an interpreter for
Scheme, packaged as a library that you can link into your applications
to give them their own scripting language.  Guile should eventually
support other languages as well, giving users of Guile-based
applications a choice of languages.

This is primarily a bugfix release.  Highlights include:

  - A build problem has been fixed.  Previously, on some systems, the
    build would fail when libguile-ltdl couldn't be found during the

  - The array-map! and array-map-in-order! functions now allow a
    single source argument.  In prior versions, calls with just one
    source array were rejected.

  - A string->number overflow for bases other than 2, 10 and 16 has
    been fixed.  Among other things, this affected octal literal

  - The argument order for the equality predicate passed to the SRFI-1
    functions alist-delete and alist-delete! now matches the SRFI-1

  - In accordance with the SRFI-13 specification, the functions
    string-any and string-every now make a tail call to their
    predicate function upon reaching the last character in the string.

The Guile WWW page is located at

It contains a link to the Guile FAQ and pointers to the mailing lists,
among other things.

Any bugs found in this release will be addressed by further bugfix
releases numbered 1.6.*.  The next stable Guile release with
significant functional improvements will be version 1.8.0.

In between 1.6.x and 1.8.x, you can follow Guile development in CVS
and in the Guile mailing lists (see ANON-CVS and HACKING).  Guile
builds from the development branch of CVS will have version number

Guile versions with an odd middle number, i.e. 1.5.* are unstable
development versions.  Even middle numbers indicate stable versions.
This has been the case since the 1.3.* series.
