GNU Guix 0.6 released

Item posted by Ludovic Court├Ęs <civodul> on Wed 09 Apr 2014 06:44:51 PM UTC.

We are pleased to announce the sixth alpha release of GNU Guix.

This release provides a bunch of new features, among other things:

  • "Substitutes" (pre-built binaries) must now be signed and authorized to be installed;
  • Builds can be offloaded to other build machines over SSH; we use this facility for our build farm.
  • The +guix build+ command has a new --with-source option that allows a package to be built from a tarball other than that specified in the source. This is notably useful for maintainers who want to test pre-releases of their package.
  • 91 new packages, including GNU Octave, and many upgrades, notably GNU libc 2.19.

An updated QEMU x86_64 image is provided, featuring Guix 0.6 and dmd 0.1. It starts an X server with WindowMaker.

See the original announcement for details.
