GNU Guix 0.4 released; happy birthday, GNU!

Item posted by Ludovic Court├Ęs <civodul> on Fri 27 Sep 2013 12:59:38 PM UTC.

We are pleased to celebrate GNU's 30th anniversary with the fourth alpha release of GNU Guix.

The highlights are:

  • New APIs for the instantiation of the global system environment, and for the creation of QEMU images of the system.
  • New --list-generations and --delete-generations command-line options.
  • 60 packages were added to the distro, and 27 were upgraded, notably glibc.

In addition, we provide a virtual machine image showing preliminary work toward getting a stand-alone GNU system. It features GNU dmd, a dependency-based init system written in Guile Scheme, and of course it comes with Guix installed. The image is self-reproducible in that the recipe to build it is part of Guix.

See the original announcement for details.

Join us on-line in the next couple of days for a hackathon to celebrate GNU's birthday!
