GNU Guix 0.4 released; happy birthday, GNU!
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!
