We are pleased to announce GNU Guile release 2.0.14, the next
maintenance release for the 2.0.x stable series.  This release contains
18 commits by 5 people over 4 months.

Guile is an implementation of the Scheme programming language.  It is
designed to help programmers create flexible applications that can be
extended by users or other programmers with plug-ins, modules, or
scripts.  With Guile you can create applications and games for the
desktop, the Web, the command-line, and more.

See for more information.

In parallel the Guile development team has been hard at work on the next
stable series, which we hope will see a stable release within the next
couple months.  You are encouraged to try out the recent 2.1.6 release
that was announced a few weeks ago:

[*] 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 guile-2.0.14.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 

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.15
  Libtool 2.4.6
  Makeinfo 6.3
  Gnulib v0.1-800-g68b6ade


Changes in 2.0.14 (since 2.0.13):

* Bug fixes

** Builds of .go files and of Guile itself are now bit-reproducible

** 'number->locale-string' and 'monetary-amount->locale-string' fixes

** (system base target) now recognizes "sh3" as a cross-compilation target

** Fix race condition in '00-repl-server.test'

** 'scandir' from (ice-9 ftw) no longer calls 'stat' for each entry

** Several documentation improvements


You can follow Guile development in the Git repository and on the Guile
mailing lists.  Note that Guile builds from the 'master' branch of Git
have version number 2.1.x; the stable release series can be had from

Guile versions with an odd middle number, e.g., 2.1.*, are unstable
development versions.  Even middle numbers indicate stable versions.
This has been the case since the 1.3.* series.

Please report bugs to address@hidden  We also welcome reports of
successful builds, which can be sent to the same email address.

Happy hacking with Guile!

Ludovic, on behalf of the Guile team.
