Happy birthday Guile 2.0!

Item posted by Ludovic Courtès <civodul> on Thu 16 Feb 2012 08:04:03 PM UTC.

Today is the first anniversary of GNU Guile 2.0 [0]. To celebrate it, several hackers several hackers took on the challenge to come up in one week with a neat hack:

• Ian Price quickly came up with GDBM bindings, written with Guile’s dynamic foreign function interface (FFI): <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guile-user/2012-02/msg00020.html>.

• Nala Ginrut wrote BIG, for “Bash Inner Guile”, which extends Bash with the ability to evaluate Scheme expressions: <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guile-user/2012-02/msg00026.html>.

• Mike Gran polished his port of GNU Zile to Guile: <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guile-user/2012-02/msg00033.html>.

Shortly after, he released a new version, along with an implementation of Tetris in Scheme that uses GNU Guile-Ncurses: <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guile-user/2012-02/msg00041.html>.

• Ludovic Courtès brought Guile-GCC, which allows GCC to be extended in Guile: <http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2012-02/msg00323.html>.

Happy birthday Guile 2.0, and happy GNU hacking!
